The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) has notified Veg of Lund AB that the authority intends to approve the patent “Vegan potato emulsion” – which defines the Swedish company’s unique vegetable milk alternative. This means that the upcoming patent protection covers the Canadian market.
Veg of Lund says in a press release that its patent portfolio has been strengthened by the announcement from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. It refers to the company’s vegan drink based on a combination of potatoes, rapeseed oil and a vegetable protein in the form of an emulsion. The drink is sold under the DUG brand.
“We are pleased that a patent is also approved in Canada. Earlier this year, we also received notification of approval in Europe. The fact it is based on such an everyday crop as potatoes, shows the uniqueness and strength of the approved patent,” says Professor Eva Tornberg, founder and board member of Veg of Lund.
The company has also received an approved patent in Sweden and Europe protecting the plant-based potato drink (DUG) as well as active patent applications covering the plant-based potato drink (DUG) in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, South Korea, Thailand the United Arab Emirates, and the USA. The company has also received an approved Swedish patent protecting the potato-based smoothie as well as an approved Swedish patent protecting the plant-based ice cream.
