Since these products obtain the qualities from their geographical place of production, there is a clear connection between the product and its original place of production.
GI is the ideal solution that differentiates a spice from others in the same species, which helps farmers to get a good price for their produce. However, these spices have unique flavor and attributes because they are grown in a specific geographical region of India.

These spices have a specific color, flavor, or other characteristics that distinguish them from other similar spices grown elsewhere. For instance, the Byadgi Chilli from Karnataka is known for its color while the Guntur Chilli from Andhra Pradesh is popular for its sharp pungency.
