West Bengal won the Geographical Indication for Rasagolla

The battle, which had been on for nearly the past two years, saw an end when the Geographical Indication (GI) announced that the sweet actually originated in West Bengal. After media reports of Odisha's claim to be the birth place of Rosogolla and following initiative to get a GI tag on the sweet, the West Bengal government and sweet makers presented documents to prove them wrong. We are very happy and proud that Bengal has been granted GI ( Geographical Indication) status for Rosogolla.

While Odisha has staked claim to have "invented" rasagola years ago, associating it with a centuries old ritual of Lord Jagannath, the Bengal government claimed rasagola was invented by Nabin Chandra Das in 1868. This matter came to the headlines when the Odisha government talked of getting Geographical Identity (GI) tag for Rasgulla.

"After a thorough study, we found that the juicy sweet Rosogolla indeed originated from Bengal and not Odisha".
