Sweegen tastes sweet victory against PureCircle in stevia Reb M patent lawsuit

25/05/2022 11:37 AM

KUALA LUMPUR, May 25 (Bernama) -- Sweegen, the global pioneer in wellness ingredient technologies and innovations, announced its victory against PureCircle in a stevia Rebaudioside M (Reb M) patent lawsuit.

“Today's judgment vindicates Sweegen and affirms the company's position as an industry leader in innovative sweetener solutions,” said CEO of Sweegen, Steven Chen in a statement.

“As a holder of core proprietary technologies of wellness ingredients, Sweegen vigorously guards its intellectual property rights and respects those of others.”

PureCircle, acquired by Ingredion in 2020, had filed the 2018 lawsuit against Sweegen in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, accusing Sweegen of infringing two PureCircle patents covering the manufacture of Reb M.

The legal tide turned on PureCircle when Sweegen obtained a summary judgment that both of PureCircle's asserted patents are invalid.

Since it is impossible to infringe an invalid patent, the court's invalidation of the asserted patents ends the infringement case against Sweegen at the U.S. District Court.
