(MENAFN - AFP) Your "Dongshan Bai Lu Sun" asparagus for my "Prosciutto di Parma" ham: a deal between China and the European Union to protect each others' 10 famous foods came to fruition Friday.

Started in July 2007, the so-called "10 plus 10" project aims to ensure the protection on both markets of famous food names such as France's "Roquefort" or Britain's "Blue Stilton" as well as "Longjung cha" tea or "Longkou Fen Si" noodles.

The 10 Chinese names on the list have been added in the 27-nation bloc to the more than 1,000 names of agricultural and foodstuffs protected as Geographical Indications, known as GIs.

"The EU and China have rich traditions in the production of quality products, and the GI system is a good way of highlighting these regional traditions to consumers," the EU's farm commissioner Dacian Ciolos said.

Other EU products are French "Comte" cheese, Italian "Grana Padano" cheese, Spain's "Priego de Cordoba" and "Sierra Magina" olive oils, French "Pruneaux d'Agen" dried fruit, and "Scottish Farmed Salmon" and "West Country Farmhouse Cheddar" from Britain.

China's gourmet names are "Yancheng Long Xia" crayfish, "Zhenjiang Xiang Cu" rice vinegar, "Jinxiang Da Suan" garlic, "Guanxi Mi You" honey pomelo, "Shaanxi ping guo" apple, "Lixian Ma Shan Yao" yam and "Pinggu Da Tao" peach.
