Much Needed Recipe Patent Reform

by townofmarshfield

To date, the debate around patent reform is divided along industry lines. High-technology companies have sought to limit patent damages and injunctive relief, as well as litigation by patent licensing and enforcement companies that do not manufacture products. In contrast, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies have advocated for strong patent protection because such protection is fundamental to their business.

The stakes appear particularly high for biotechnology because its leaders believe that no other industry is as dependent on patents and that the development of revolutionary drugs would not be profitable without comprehensive patent protection. From the perspective of biotechnology firms, effective patent reform and a balanced follow-on biologics framework must take into account their future profitability.

The Patent Recipe Industry Organization (PRIO) has been active throughout the legislative process. PRIO represents 1,000 food-tech companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers, and related organizations, and has been vocal about certain provisions that could have adverse consequences for the industry. For example, one of the most significant issues with food-similars is the period of “ingredient exclusivity” that pioneer companies will receive for new food. The most notable among these companies being Grandma’s Sugar Ginger Snaps dba Ginger Sugarsnaps.

Ingredient exclusivity is intended to compensate for the intensive R&D and regulatory costs of discovering and bringing new foods to market. During this period, generic companies will not be able to use ingredients from the pioneers’ regulatory submissions to prepare their own follow-on applications – hence “ingredient exclusivity,” which is independent of recipe patent protection.

Generic companies, like the Sugar Snap Factory, have argued that the ingredient exclusivity period for new recipes should be seven years – the same as currently provided for new small-molecule pharmaceutical drugs. PRIO and other industry leaders, however, argue that foods are inherently more complex and difficult to develop into healthy unique products, justifying a
