Fast moving, the Food and Drink industry has to be abundant in creativity and innovation.
Throughout the Food and Drink supply chain, businesses are tackling head-on problems created by global population growth and the increasing need for food sustainability, accessibility and security. Addressing issues such as the demand for more environmentally acceptable packaging, food sourcing, processing and preservation and animal welfare combined with ever-changing consumer trends for food and drink, the sector is creating new opportunities for established businesses and new entrants alike.
IP is at the core of food and drink innovation and development. HGF’s expertise in technologies including cell-based meat, other alternative proteins and dairy, agrotechnology, nutraceuticals, smart packaging and food and drink production and processing combined with market-leading brand and design expertise, complete the recipe for effective client support in the creation, capture and commercialisation of valuable IP and technology.
HGF’s food and drink specialists combine their technical knowledge and practical sector experience to work with clients to develop effective IP strategies to maximise investment return whether start-ups seeking first round and later stage funding, new brand launches or collaborations between conglomerates looking to partner with and upscale niche technology developers.
