You can read up on trademark related articles highlighting counterfeited pâtés and the outcome of the most escalated trade mark disputes for processed cheese in the Czech Republic.

We are also featuring the regulatory issues of the food industry discussing if a “fat tax” helps fight against obesity within the EU. Furthermore, should crocodiles really enrich the Czech diet?

Last but not least, we do not want to withhold the report on the progress of the Greek yoghurt trial in the UK.
