The Gramin Vikas Trust of Krishak Bharati Cooperative (KRIBHCO) had sought GI tag for the protein-rich and black coloured meat of Kadaknath variety of chicken, which is mainly reared in Jhabua.
As per the information available on the Geographical Indications Registry, India, the application, made in the category of “Meat Product, Poultry & Poultry Meat”, for famous Kadaknath chicken meat from Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh has now got a Geographical Indication (GI) tag.
The tag denotes that the product comes from a particular geographical area, and often enhances its commercial value.
A Chhattisgarh-based organisation too had sought similar recognition for the Kadaknath chickens bred in Dantewada district, but Jhabua’s claim seems to have prevailed.
