Extract from text: 
Then there are also some other labels, for Hessen -good thing from Hessen-, where the original product and the processing must take place in Hessen. But Hessen in itself also is no definition for a locality. So it is one but under circumstances not the decisive one. Just this definition, which finds much use in federal states: Lower Saxony product, Hessian product or -good from Hessen-. If you call it a local product, then you advertise that a product that comes from the far end of northern Hesse is just as Hessian as a product from southern Hesse. And if this product is transported from North Hesse to South Hesse, it is still a local product according to this definition. But if it is transported 25km to the north, to the Dutch borders, it is no longer a local product in the sense of the word. These are things that should be resolved. The regional window is a good way to do this.
