West Bengal celebrates ‘Rasogolla Day’
West Bengal celebrated ‘Rasogolla Dibas’ to mark second anniversary of granting of GI tag for Banglar Rasogolla. On November 14, 2017, West Bengal received the GI tag for Rosogolla. A GI tag identifies a product as originating from a particular region. West Bengal and Odisha were involved in a tug-of-war to stake a claim to the origin of the sweetmeat. While West Bengal was granted the GI tag for ”Banglar Rosogulla” or the Bengal variant of the sweetmeat in 2017, Odisha got the GI tag for ”Odisha Rasagola” or the Odisha variant earlier this year.
