Food technology

A fast-moving and highly competitive sector, food technology covers an area with health, sustainability and economics at the heart of innovation.  

The food industry is evolving to meet demand to bring new, greener, healthier products to market in the most cost effective way possible. This, in turn, is driving significant developments in food production processes, new and improved ingredients and food products.  

HGF’s food technology team works with businesses at every level to maximise competitive advantage, from major global brands, to start-up companies and their investors, advising on every IP aspect of the food production process, the product itself and packaging. Our specialist attorneys tap into their scientific backgrounds and current knowledge of the latest food tech advances to develop commercially-focused, multidisciplinary IP strategies.
