Specialist Attorneys For The FMCG Industry

Are you invested in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods Industry (FMCG) and seeking to protect a new invention in this space? Patents and design rights are commonly used to achieve this for food/beverages, packaging and production technologies.

Protecting the FMCG industry

With the phase-out of the innovation patent, many inventors within this industry are now faced with a more complex process for protecting their intellectual property. This is why you should engage a specialist attorney for patents in the food industry. 

IP Guardian is a leading patent law firm in Australia with decades of experience protecting its client's interests across a range of industries including those seeking food patents.  

Unsure where to begin with pursuing a patent in the FMCG industry or whether you can patent food products or packaging? We’re here to simplify the process and ensure inventors within the FMCG industry secure the appropriate protection for their products.

Learn About Patenting Food Recipes And More 

While recipes in Australia are usually not patentable, there can be exceptions for truly novel ideas. For example, famous food patents include vegan meats, milk alternatives or other new foods and ingredients.

Famous food patents include milk alternatives

We are committed to supporting Australian innovators to protect their ideas and profit from their hard work. If after a review we deem you’re unable to patent your food invention or recipe, we will suggest other avenues for protection. 

With our guidance you can gain a better understanding of:

  • How you can patent a food product
  • How much it costs to patent a food recipe
  • Limitations in patenting food, recipes or packaging
  • Defending infringing behaviour and more.
