English Champagne? Geographical Indications (GIs) and productivity after Brexit


This research was the first to consider the growth and productivity benefits of Geographical Indications (GIs) in the UK. It provided an evidence-base for effective policy development and governance in this area post-Brexit.

The project comprised two main elements. First, a look backwards to assess the impact of existing GIs in the UK on growth and productivity. Second, a forward look to identify strategies and processes which could be adopted in the UK to support GIs in the future.

This involved a review of international best practice and a series of regional consultations to identify possible candidate products for future GIs.
