Scots MEP Struan Stevenson today welcomed a decision to grant protected status to Stornoway black pudding.
The decision means that only products made in the Isle of Lewis town can be labelled and marketed as "Stornoway" black pudding and puts it on a par with Parma ham, Roquefort cheese and Champagne.
Mr Stevenson said: "Black pudding from Stornoway is well-known and well-loved around the world and this decision means it cannot be be faked or counterfeited. People will not be allowed to pass off inferior puddings made elsewhere as Stornoway puddings.
"It's a good day for Stornoway and a good day for black pudding."
