FMCG (food, drinks, packaging)

FMCG (food, drinks, packaging)

Our attorneys have in-depth experience of working in the area of FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods), in particular home care, food products and packaging.

We realise that even a small improvement in this field can be of tremendous commercial value and can make a huge difference in the marketplace. As a result we are familiar with the challenge of patenting in mature technology fields.

We have personal experience of working for multinational companies in the FMCG area and have a history of working with a number of other small and medium companies in this field. 

We have experience of drafting patent applications, arguing and amending them before the European Patent Office and the UK Intellectual Property Office.  We are also very experienced in defending or attacking such patents in contentious Opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office.

Example areas of expertise include:

  • Food compositions and process technology
  • Beverage compositions and processing
  • Detergents and laundry compositions
  • Shop ready packaging
  • Supply chain
  • Consumer related benefits
  • Packaging, especially cardboard and thermoplastic materials
