The term "Phu Quoc" has been officially registered as a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) for naturally fermented Vietnamese fish extract.

It will be added to the list of more than 1,000 names of agricultural products and foodstuffs protected as either PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) or PDO.

It is the eleventh non-EU product name to receive the protected status, following Colombian coffee, Indian Darjeeling tea and eight Chinese products.-VNA
