The subject of this paper is the knowledge and attitudes of employees in the hospitality industry about products with protected geographical origin in Serbia. In order to include these products in the gastronomic offer, data whether employees are aware of them must be obtained since they represent the main purpose of this paper. The aim of this paper is to investigate the knowledge level, awareness and attitudes of employees in catering and tourism in Serbia about the importance and the type of protected products and their representation in the gastronomic offer of Serbia. The critical review is in accord with the official regulations and guidelines under the law of the Republic of Serbia on protected products. Employees (n = 202) in restaurants on the territory of Serbia participated in the research. The data obtained by the survey were processed using descriptive statistics and presented in a table in the paper. Based on the conducted research, it was found out that the employees are familiar with the concept of protected food, but that their use is not sufficiently represented in the gastronomic offer of Serbia.
