A Geographical Indication or a GI is an indication used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin. Such a name conveys an assurance of quality and distinctiveness which is essentially attributable to its origin in that defined geographical locality. Darjeeling Tea, Mahabaleshwar Strawberry, Blue Pottery of Jaipur, Banarasi Sarees and Tirupati Laddus are some of the GIs.
GI tag gives the rightful share in the intellectual property to the farmers and the place of origin of the produce. The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion has taken several initiatives in this regard and is actively involved in promotion and marketing of GIs with a vision to enhance the horizon both socially and economically for GI producers.
The king of mangoes, Alphonso, better known as ‘Hapus’ in Maharashtra, is in demand in domestic and international markets not only for its taste but also for pleasant fragrance and vibrant colour. It has long been one of the world's most popular fruit.

APEDA’s initiatives in Traceability in India
To assure the importing countries that the quality requirements are being maintained at every level of supply chain , APEDA took initiatives to set up traceability mechanism in agricultural products, as this area is gaining more and more importance due to the growing awareness in the international market, especially in the major markets of developed countries. It helps to establish clear linkages between the stake-holders through ‘farm-to-fork’ monitoring to ensure implementation of appropriate pre-harvest & post-harvest practices, processing and ensuring quality & food safety.
