A Geographical Indication (GI) is a designation or symbol applied to certain items that refers to a certain geographic place or origin (e.g., a town, region, or country).

The GI tag ensures that the popular product name can only be used by people who have been registered as authorised users (or at the very least, those who live within the geographic territory).

Khaje is a sweet confection served at temple zatras and church feasts in Goa. Throughout the year, temples and chapels in practically every village in Goa celebrate a variety of festivals. Following the religious service, followers stroll through the fair, perusing the stalls set up in the area.

GoanKhaje, a traditional sweet delicacy served during temple Zatra and church feasts, has been granted Geographical Indications (GI) status under the food category class 30.

All Goa Khaje Producers Association (AGKPA) filed the application on July 24, 2019.

"Khaje is a celebratory sweet dessert served during temple zatras and church feasts in Goa. Throughout the year, temples and chapels in practically every village in Goa hold a variety of festivities. Following the religious ritual, devotees stroll through the fair, looking at the various vendors set up in the area. The GoanKhaje is one of the most prevalent and popular treats constructed like pyramids."

Throughout the year, churches, chapels, and temples in Goa celebrate a variety of festivals. Following the religious ritual, followers will stroll through the fair, stopping at the various stalls put up throughout the area. Toys, souvenirs, balloons, household furnishings, garments, spices, bangles, copperware, authentic cuisines, snacks, and sweets are among the products sold by vendors. The Khaje is a frequent and popular food that is piled high like a mountain. Also known as the feast or zatra sweet, 'khaje' gets its peculiar flavour from the Goan ginger, local salt, and potable well water used in its preparation. The sweet is also said to have originated in Goa years ago, according to the notice.

GoanKhaje has been registered under class 30, which deals with food goods, according to information accessible with the geographical indication registry office, which is under the jurisdiction of the Controller General of Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks.

The All-Goa Khaje Producers Association (AGKPA), based in Bicholim, petitioned for the tag a year ago through the department of science and technology.
