Guachinches to become a brand to ensure quality and control

It was almost exactly two years ago that the Canarian Government passed legislation regulating guachinches. The law was designed to control the proliferation of rural establishments which claimed to offer home-grown produce but which had really bought in supplies cheaply to entice those who wanted an authentic experience (see HERE). Many will be unsurprised that the measure didn’t work, not least because the plaque that was supposed to be issued upon registration – either annual or by harvest – was sold in certain outlets, and so an illegal guachinche could pass as authorised even to visual inspection.
