Kashmir Saffron GI
Saffron, one of the prized and costliest spices in the world is predominantly cultivated in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. Kashmir’s saffron is known for its intrinsic characters primarily because of its strong colors and flavor. Saffron finds use in the perfumery and cosmetic industries, besides being the most sought after additive in the foods industry. The application was filed by The Agriculture Production Department, Jammu and Kashmir in December, 2018.
BANANAIP TIP OF THE WEEK
One does not need a trademark registration to oppose the trademark of another. As long as a trademark is in continuous use, the application of another for a same or similar mark, can be opposed as it will cause consumer confusion if granted.
