Looks like Cyprus now has control of the UK trademark for Halloumi.

Cyprus wins halloumi battle in UK
Halloumi UK trademark back in Greek Cypriot hands but cheese wars far from over

Just have the get the PDO in place with a proper recipe reflecting the special character of the traditional product.

Indeed.
Halloumi is CY as fu**

It's like Cyprus laying claim to Cornish Pie... which is British as fu**

And here is not so good news from the ECJ
http://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/document.jsf;jsessionid=4C13024088EC6E41266728AD27C516BC?text=&docid=219261&pageIndex=0&doclang=EN&mode=req&dir=&occ=first&part=1&cid=7693868

basically they held that it was not distinctive enough as product to prevent a Bulgarian company naming a cheese product BBQloumi.

Lots of work to do.
