EUROPE - Don’t Call It Parmesan If It’s Not from Italy

The European Union wants U.S. cheese makers to stop calling their Parmesan cheese Parmesan cheese, the AP reports.

According to the Europeans, only cheese called Parmesan should come from Parma, Italy. Also, if it doesn’t come from Greece, it’s not feta.
The Europeans have been making their cheese case as part of broader trade talks with the U.S., according to the AP. And they’ve been making a similar case in talks with other countries. Under one recent deal, new products in Canada can’t be called feta unless they’re from Greece. (Still OK: “feta-like” and “feta-style.”)
This kind of thing is actually pretty common in global trade. Bourbon can only come from the U.S. Mezcal can only come from the mountains in Oaxaca, Mexico and the surrounding area., 14 March 2014

Arno's commentary

This type of global lawful definition process continues with no end in sight. Logically, Europeans cannot make their own drinks and call it Coca-Cola or McDonald’s hamburgers. But all that leads to the continuous progress toward unifying planet Earth. When reading and hearing such similar news, we must keep in mind the Scripture that speaks of the end stages of the end-times, “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast” (Revelation 17:13).

About Swift Word News Service

Introduction to Swift Word News Service

Welcome to Swift Word. This 5 day a week Christian News Service with biblical comments is based on Psalm 147:15, "He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly."
The purpose: Jesus stated, "I will build my Church." That building process has been ongoing for about 2,000 years. Believers in Jesus Christ are to be found on every continent and in every country on planet Earth.
While Christians all over are concerned about their own country, the greatest concern should always be the building of His Church. Swift Word gives you the news, identifying its prophetic relationship to the Church of Jesus Christ, His body, the Temple of the Holy Spirit.
Following Swift Word 5 days a week will contribute to a better understanding of His Church in our time.
Please tell family, friends, and church members about Swift Word. Swift Word's number one priority is His Word, His Church, and developments around the world pointing to His return.
