Intellectual Property Relating to Product Innovation in the Food Sector

Product Innovation Stage

There are a suite of intellectual property rights which are directly applicable to the food sector.

Patents offer a means for exclusive protection of a range of innovations in the food sector – for example, manufacturing and factory automation, storage, packaging – that provide a commercial advantage over competitors. Patents also act as tangible assets to facilitate business discussions.

Trade Marks protect your badge of origin and is a way of identifying or distinguishing your product or service from those of third parties. They are a valuable asset if protected and used correctly.

This session will discuss intellectual property with a focus on trademarks and patents as they are applicable to the food sector, what protection they can offer, and how they can best be used as business tools.
