Agribusiness Food Nutrition
The innovative processes developed in the agribusiness and food technology sector, exemplify human ingenuity. The ability to protect this ingenuity through intellectual property rights can assist stakeholders to secure market dominance, especially in important transportation hubs such as Singapore.
With the increasing development of agribusiness and food technology as a high end export industry in Australia and New Zealand, strong reliance on IP rights and custom provisions internationally is essential.
Protecting innovation in the agribusiness and food technology industry is the first step. Trade mark and design registration of packaging is the next.
Trade mark and design registration offers an important means to protect product form, appearance and tracking. In such a vibrant industry, there is a need for strategic advice to integrate all forms of IP to protect innovation and facilitate business development.
