The lawsuit charges that the processes Natural uses to manufacture its dietary nutritional supplement, Tonalin CLA, infringes two Loders Croklaan patents.
Loders Croklaan is seeking monetary damages for Natural’s infringement of its patents and an injunction prohibiting Natural from infringing its patents in the future.
“These patents are important to Loders Croklaan, and we believe it is important to protect our intellectual property against infringement,” said Aat Visser, Loders Croklaan’s General Manager for Lipid Nutrition.
