Georgia: Russia Must Respect Khachapuri Brand

Russia, like other countries, must respect Georgia’s rights for its “patented” national brands, Georgia’s Deputy Foreign Ministry Nino Kalanadze stated. Recently Georgia’s intellectual property agency Sakpatent registered 37 national meals and drinks, such as chacha (grape vodka), khachapuri (cheese bread), churchkhela (grape candy), etc., many of them widespread in Russia as well. Georgia believes the protection of Georgian national brands is an obligation of Russia under a bilateral brand protection agreement of 2004.
