Protect your creative work by registering copyright
Protecting agri-food innovations is a major challenge for companies in this competitive sector. Nevertheless, agri-food companies rarely register their innovations.
It is essential for agri-food companies to register any innovation. These innovations can be recipes, cocktails, culinary processes or visual elements. Registering makes it possible to protect their innovations and thus avoid any infringement of rights.
Patent filing is not always appropriate for the protection of innovations in the agri-food sector. For an innovation to be patentable, a new technological innovation should be part of it. However, a recipe is essentially a matter of know-how. Patent filing is also a long and expensive process for companies.
In French territories filing a patent takes about 36 months from the date of filing to it being granted, with a minimum cost of 4000€ for one simple filing.
