Corsican honey wins AOC

CORSICAN honey has been added to the list of products accorded Frances prestigious appellation dorigine contrôlle (AOC) quality mark.

Producers hope the award will increase the value of their output by distinguishing it from commodity products.

The AOC mark is usually associated with fine wine and cheese, but has now been bestowed on 18 other food and agricultural products, including poultry.
