Thought for Food: IP and Takeaway and Restaurant Innovation
What possible link could there be between IP and fast food? Lots when you think of it. Trade Marks, passing off, geographical indications and of course all sorts of improvements in food preparation and distribution technology that can be patented.
That will explain why Gary Townley of the Intellectual Property Office will be speaking and exhibiting at the Takeaway & Restaurant Innovation Expo 2017 that takes place at the ExCel Centre today and tomorrow. Gary is also presenting a course on IP for the food and drink industry at Northampton Central Library on Thursday.
IP in the production, preparation, marketing and distribution is a subject of which I have had a lot of experience having been in some important cases and having advised and represented some rising stars in the industry. If you are engaged in agriculture, food preparation, distribution or catering I should be glad to talk to you.
