The impact of AOC policy on rural development

The consequences resulting from the application of the concept of controlled designations of origin (Protected Designation of Origin or PDO) to products that are strongly tied to their "terroir" allows firm hypotheses to be proposed on the impact of this policy on rural development .. This impact affects occupation, employment and countryside management in the territories concerned and the value assigned to these territories and local culture. A concrete and in-depth evaluation of the impact of AOC policy on rural development has never been carried out. Such an evaluation requires access to existing technical, economic and social statistics. It will also require specific statistics that are not currently available, as AOC products are considered as marginal except within the wine sector. Furthermore, non-economic disciplines need to be adopted to determine the impact on territorial value and on the creation and transmission of local culture.
