Food and Drink
The range of technologies in the food and drink sector is considerable: new compositions, production and packaging processes, yield improvements, storage, waste management and more. Our team has experience across the board. Gaining patent protection in this field is often challenging due to the wealth of public information on food ingredients and their properties. Our attorneys bring a creative approach to examining the information available and identifying the innovative and protectable aspects of a client’s products. In addition to protecting such technologies via patents and designs, and advising on freedom to operate, our food and drink team also works with clients on trade mark protection and enforcement. We have considerable experience of brand management within this field and understand just how important it can be. We’re adept at building trade mark strategies that really deliver. We also advise on geographical indications.. Our clients include multinational food production companies, food tech start-ups, charities, universities and government departments.
