Sweet suc­cess: GI tag for WB’s iconic ra­so­golla

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

Kolkata: It was a bit­terly fought bat­tle, but West Bengal tasted sweet suc­cess at the end. The state on Tues­day won the ge­o­graph­i­cal in­di­ca­tion (GI) tag for “Banglar ra­so­golla” beat­ing Odisha, re­port Jhimli Mukherjee Pandey & Mi­nati Singha. The ver­dict comes af­ter a 26month bat­tle that the two states fought in the in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty wing of the min­istry of com­merce, which con­fers the GI tag.

CM Ma­mata Ban­er­jee tweeted, “Sweet news for us all. We are very happy and proud that #Bengal has been granted GI sta­tus for roso­golla.”
