“Gamula”, “teterya”, “vereshchak” and “salamata” are the names of dishes that have long been cooked in Ukraine and can be confidently called traditional Ukrainian cuisine. But over time, these recipes have disappeared, radically changing our perception of the peculiarities of national cuisine. Also, many dishes are actually radically Ukrainian, but their real names are different. For example, “deruny” used to be called “tertuhy”, and “holodets” is “dragli”, cutlets are “sichenyky”. There are many other dishes that were cooked in Ukraine a long time ago and were truly Ukrainian but are forgotten now.
Once studied an old book of recipes it is possible to find a description of a tender white cheese called NABIL.
NABIL is a special ancient Ukrainian FETA-type cheese that was forgotten by Ukrainians. It is made according to an ancient recipe, but on modern equipment, and from fresh milk of local cows, sheep and goats, which are fed on the best Ukrainian meadows. The new modern but authentic recipe makes NABIL’s taste very soft and delicate, just the kind that Ukrainians like the most. NABIL is white cheese from the heart of Ukrainian traditions.


At the end of 2020 five key producers’ associations which unite FETA producers signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Project “Support to the development of a geographical indications system in Ukraine” about recognition of the new NABIL name and their further common work on FETA rebranding.
The precondition for FETA rebranding is undertaken by Ukraine obligations under the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU. Article 208 of this Agreement provides a transitional period for the use of geographical indications for three cheeses, in particular FETA, which is ending on 31 December 2022.
But it's not just a name change – it is a concept change. After all, FETA, which is produced in Ukraine, is not similar to FETA, which is protected by geographical indications in Greece. Our cheese is different, so the name should be our, Ukrainian.
We invite producers to join common work!
