Abstract

Food is not only a component of the material world, but it also plays a vital role in economic, social, and symbolic practices. In the past, food production and consumption on the part of the Slovenian population strongly depended on regional origins and the local economy. Some such regional products include olive and pumpkin seed oils. Pumpkin seed oil has had a special role in the diet of the inhabitants of the Goričko region. Today it is an important factor in economic development as well as an expression of regional affiliation and local cuisine. The Styrian-Prekmurje pumpkin seed oil from the north-eastern part of Slovenia has been protected in the European Union with the Geographical Indication-PGI.
