The European Union's highest court has ruled that feta cheese is a traditional Greek product that deserves protection throughout the 25-nation block. As a result, non-Greek European feta producers will not be allowed to call their product "feta."

Hans Bender of the Danish Dairy Board and Christos Avgoulas of Greece's Ministry of Rural Development and Food discuss the impact of the decision.
