Being in Peru from the next weeks makes me feel closer to news concerning IP in Latin America. Maybe that's the reason why Gustavo M. Rodriguez Garcia (Benites, Forno, Ugaz & Ludowieg, Andrade) has informed be of the granting by INDECOPI of the sixth denomination of origin of Peru to Loche de Lambayeque, an agricultural product grew in an anchestral manner that is fundamental for the gastronomy of Nothern Peru.
