Porcelaine de Limoges GI Association
Laurence Besse has been the Director of the Union des Fabricants de Porcelaine de Limoges (UFPL, association of the Limoges porcelain manufacturers) since September 2006. She also holds the same position at the association for the Porcelaine de Limoges Geographical Indication, founded in 2014.
The UFPL, an employer’s federation founded in 1919 to protect and uphold the interests of the porcelain manufacturers of Limoges, has consistently strived to secure enduring legal protection for the profession. It therefore helped found the association for the Porcelaine de Limoges Geographical Indication, the organisation overseeing matters pertaining to this GI, which was approved by the INPI on 1 December 2017.
