“Sucre” trademark application steps up state branding
Local PTO (SAPI) authorities and the state governor officially launched the application of the collective trademark of the state of Sucre recently.
“The collective trademarks are an important project of the local PTO and are considered a source of reinforcement of economy by the president of Venezuela…” said Rosmary Guerra, the Director General of SAPI. The trademark “Sucre” will help to promote and protect the products of the region, benefiting and developing the local economy. By using this trademark, it would be possible to certify the quality of the products made in the state of Sucre (such as cocoa , sugar, coffee), and to identify their origin.
Furthermore, the local PTO is committed to elaborate and sign a cooperation agreement with the institution SAPI-CORDESU, concerning a free access to SAPI’s patent database of patents that are in public domain. This will help to enhance and renew the technology used by the companies of the region of Sucre.
