You can also look for the European Union PDO certification (Protected Designation of Origin – also know as DOP in Italian) or PGI (Protected Geographical Indication – also known as IGP in Italian).
PDO certified products must be produced, processed and prepared in a specific region using traditional production methods and have the sensorial qualities attributed to that region.
PGI is less strict and certifies that one stage of the process occurred in a specific region. Third party authorities constantly monitor these certifications.
