Three Appenzell Meat Specialties To Be Protected By Law

The Swiss Federal Office of Agriculture has added three unique meat products from the Appenzell region to a national register, which legally protects the connection between the dishes and their geographical origin.

The addition to the agriculture office’s list of Protected Geographical Indications (PGI), announced Thursday, means that the three meat products – Appenzeller Mostbröckli, Pantli and Siedwurst – are now protected in Switzerland as well as in the European Union. 

Mostbröckli is a round, salty meat dish made with cuts of smoked then dried beef. Pantli is a dried sausage made of raw meat that tastes strongly of garlic and comes in a distinct rectangular shape. Finally, Siedwurst is a scalded sausage that can be served raw, cooked or pasteurised. It is notable for its taste of cumin and garlic.
