SWEEGEN DEFENDS AND PROTECTS ITS REB M INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AGAINST DISTORTED CLAIMS

Sweetener company is confident in the marketplace and upcoming litigation

Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stevia-based sweetener company SweeGen is strong in its unassailable position to defend and protect its production of Reb M by its highly titer-effective and cost-effective patent-protected process --- Reb M produced via Reb D4. This statement is in response to the distorted claims about intellectual property made by PureCircle in the media today.


On this basis, SweeGen has no doubt that the upcoming patent litigation with its competitor PureCircle will vindicate its rights in the Reb M marketplace. SweeGen is the primary producer of Reb M originating from the stevia leaf in that marketplace.
In its recently published international patent application PCT/US/2017/056457, SweeGen, the exclusive licensee, discloses its Reb M via Reb D4 process and expects the claims to grant.  


SweeGen is confident that it will prevail not only in the upcoming litigation with PureCircle, but also in the marketplace for sweeteners generally as being the pioneer of successful production of high purity non-GMO rebaudiosides, and in particular of Reb M.
