Why is IP important to you? Well, it’s an income for us. At our age, you might call it a retirement income. The idea is to globalise it, and reap the rewards of our efforts.
Does IP underpin you competitive advantage? There’s nothing like it on the market, obviously I wouldn’t have been able to get registration without it being unique. The competitive advantage is that our packaging is designed to be reused, cut down on waste and carbon footprints, and is user friendly.
Why did you enter the IP League Table? I thought it would be interesting to see if we could make an impression and lift our IP identity from what it is at the moment.
