A system of protected brands of agricultural products and foodstuffs has existed in the EU since 1993. The goal of this project to analyse the acquisitions of protected brands of agricultural products and foodstuffs in the Czech Republic using the EU DOOR database. The Czech Republic was compared with other countries that joined the EU in the same year – 2004. A comparison was made (primarily, but not exclusively) with regard to the number of registered brands and concerns the following countries: Slovak Republic, Hungary, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovenia, Malta and Cyprus. However, the comparison did not involve merely the number of registered brands, but also the individual types of registered names in detail (this means PGI, PDO and TSG considered individually). The analysis has been conducted for the years 2004 – 2016. The Czech Republic is extremely successful in terms of the number of registered brands within the system of protected brands of agricultural products and foodstuffs in the EU as compared to other countries that joined the EU in 2004. The Czech Republic is the most successful with the registration of 33 brands immediately behind Poland which has registered 37 brands. Compared to the other 9 countries, the Czech Republic is in first place in terms of the number of registrations within the PGI system (23 registrations) and is in second place with regard to the number of registrations in the PDO system (the number of registrations is 6). Czech Republic has also been extremely successful with regard to the number of registrations in the TSG system, lying in third place (4 registrations).
