Brand names are important in the food and beverage industry, particularly as consumers can show strong brand loyalty for these types of products.
Keeping abreast of changing trends in this industry, it is important for brand owners to ensure their trade mark portfolios are kept up to date as new brands and products are launched. This is principally important in light of the significant number of lookalike food and beverage products available to consumers.
