Terms of use
Open use. Must provide the source. Use for commercial purposes requires permission of the data owner.


In order to use the designation "mountain product" (for example, mountain cheese), the raw materials for the product must come from the mountain area or the summer pasture area and must be processed in a municipality which is located in full or in part in the mountain or summer pasture area. If the products are processed outside the mountain or summer pasture area, only a reference to the origin of the raw materials is permitted (for example, "yogurt made from mountain milk"). This exception does not apply to cheese. In the case of cheese, the milk must be produced and the cheese made in the mountain area or the summer pasture area. Only the maturing process can take place outside this area.
