1). Trademark Filing in India & International Brand Protection Services:
A brand is the key component of a food company or product’s success. A trademark is a legally protected word, name, design, logo, or other symbol of your product or business. For example, “Oreo” is a trademarked product name. That means no one else can use the name “Oreo” to sell their cookies. A trademark can be obtained for a food product, restaurant or chef’s name.

2). Copyright Filing:
A Copyright is an exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the creator of original artistic work for the use and distribution of the artistic work for a limited period of time. Copyright is a form of intellectual property, copyright are considered territorial rights,which means that they don’t extend beyond the territory of a specific jurisdiction. Copyright does not protect merely utilitarian articles, ideas, facts, or formulas. Since food is a useful article, copyright law will apply only if the food incorporates highly creative features that are separable (either physically or conceptually) from the food’s utilitarian features.
In food industries, chefs sometimes borrow and build upon ideas from others. Properly applied, intellectual property law is flexible enough to protect highly creative food designs from substantial copying. Copyright filing is important because a chef who, without permission, creates a derivative food design that is substantially similar to another’s copyright-protected food design or other work could be at risk for copyright infringement claims.
Cooking is also a “ART”.
Protect your art by filing a COPYRIGHT.

3). Filing Patents in Food Industries
A food industry can obtain a patent on a novel and non-obvious recipe or cooking technique. However, overcoming the novel/non-obvious hurdle under patent law is difficult in the food industry. Patents can also be obtained for a novel food processing strategy. Moreover, patent rights can be used to protect new ideas which arise from the Research and Development department in the food industry. Food and drinks is one of the largest manufacturing sectors and industry invests heavily in R&D. Many Food industries overlook the opportunity to patent aspects of their food products or specialised manufacturing processes.
TCIS, India has a large in-house, full-time team of patent agents, attorneys, or former patent examiners, many of whom hold advanced degrees in food technology. We at Tech Corp International Strategist (TCIS, India) can help you determine if your invention is patentable. Our team of Patent attorneys have expertise in worldwide Patent analysis, Patent portfolio and landscaping besides Prior art searching, validity searches, Freedom to Operate report and Reporting patent Infringement for granted patents.

4). Plant Varieties Rights:
Plant Breeders’ Rights (PBR) is an internationally recognised system, which allows the breeder to hold intellectual property rights in the propagation of a new variety for commercial use. It enables the collection of end-point royalties (EPR), which can then be used to fund future breeding activities.
Plant breeders’ rights (PBR) are also known as plant variety rights (PVR), and gives the breeder exclusive control over the propagating material (including seed, cuttings, divisions, tissue culture) and harvested material (cut flowers, fruit, foliage) of a new variety of plant for a specific period of time.
To qualify for protection, a plant variety must be new, distinct from other varieties, and have uniform characteristics.
If You Are Wondering What The Process Is To Obtain Plant Variety Rights, Contact Our Attorneys at Tech Corp International Strategist India TCIS, India For More Information.
5). Obtaining Industrial Design Rights:
Industrial Design protection is provided for a shape, configuration, surface pattern, colour, or line (or a combination of these), which, when applied to a functional article, produces or increases aesthetics, and improves the visual appearance of the design. Industrial Design rights are provided for a period of 10 years and can be renewed for an additional period of 5 years. For a design to qualify for protection are: It should be novel, original, non-obvious and should be visible on a finished functional article.

Innovations in food technology sector goes in accordance with the consumer demand for healthy and safe food and while simultaneously improving the quality and shelf life of the food product. The food industry is at present interested in some of the novel food processing technologies that improves the quality of food but at a low cost. The major industries constituting the food processing sector are grain milling, sugar, edible oils, beverages, fruits & vegetables processing and dairy products.
India has a rich agriculture resource and was ranked No.1 in the world in 2013 in terms of production of Arecanut, Bananas, Castor oil seed, Chickpeas, Chillies & Peppers dry, Ginger, Lemons & limes, Mangoes, Mangosteens, guavas, Millet, Okra, Papayas, Pigeon peas, Meat- buffalo, Milk-whole fresh buffalo & goat, Ghee, butter oil of cow milk, Ghee of buffalo milk and sesame seed. India ranks second in the world in the production of Anise, fennel, coriander, beans-dry, cabbages and other brassicas, cauliflower & broccoli, Egg plants (aubergines), Garlic, Groundnuts with shell, Lentil, Onions dry, Peas green, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Squash and Gourds, Rice/Paddy, Safflower seed, Sugar cane, Tea, Tomatoes, Wheat, Meat-goat, Milk whole fresh cow. Further, India is at third position in the production of Cashew nuts, with shell, Coconuts, Lettuce and chicory, Nutmeg, mace and cardamoms, Pepper (piper spp.) and Rapeseed.
India’s strategic geographic location and its close vicinity to food-importing nations makes India favourable for the export of processed food products. A total of 127 agro-climatic zones have been identified in India. Moreover, 42 Mega Food Parks (MFP) are being setup in India with an investment of USD 2.38 billion. The parks have around 1250 developed plots with basic enabled infrastructure that entrepreneurs can take on lease for the setting up of food processing and ancillary units. With an extensive network of food processing training, academic and research institutes, the cost of skilled manpower is relatively low in India as compared to other countries.
In order to promote innovations in food processing sector, Central and state governments have instated attractive incentives like capital subsidies, tax rebates, depreciation benefits, and reduced custom and excise duties for processed food and machinery.
Food processing is recognised as a priority sector in the Make in India policy and is one of the major employment oriented segments in India. With the growing awareness and concern for health and wellness, consumers are experimenting with different cuisines, tastes and new brands paving the way for new investment opportunities in the food processing sector. The recent patents filed in the Food processing sector in India are:

Einstein, twenty-six years old, only three years away from crude privation, still a patent examiner, published in the Annalen der Physik in 1905 five papers on entirely different subjects. Three of them were among the greatest in the history of physics. One, very simple, gave the quantum explanation of the photoelectric effect—it was this work for which, sixteen years later, he was awarded the Nobel prize. Another dealt with the phenomenon of Brownian motion, the apparently erratic movement of tiny particles suspended in a liquid: Einstein showed that these movements satisfied a clear statistical law. This was like a conjuring trick, easy when explained: before it, decent scientists could still doubt the concrete existence of atoms and molecules: this paper was as near to a direct proof of their concreteness as a theoretician could give. The third paper was the special eory of relativity, which quietly amalgamated space, time, and matter into one fundamental unity. This last paper contains no references and quotes no authority. All of them are written in a style unlike any other theoretical physicist’s. They contain very little mathematics. There is a good deal of verbal commentary. The conclusions, the bizarre conclusions, emerge as though with the greatest of ease: the reasoning is unbreakable. It looks as though he had reached the conclusions by pure thought, unaided, without listening to the opinions of others. To a surprisingly large extent, that is precisely what he had done. — Baron C.P. Snow
