Evolving consumer tastes and demand for quality continue to drive new products and processing technology in the Food and Beverage industry. Branding also plays an important role in this area due to the general nature of the consumer base and the significant level of competition. For example, the explosion in craft brewing and steady growth in health foods mean that companies rely heavily on their brand to distinguish them from their competitors. You need an intellectual property lawyer who can both help you protect your technical advances, and also carve out a space for your brand, in this crowded industry.
