German gummy snack maker agrees to redesign after lawsuit
March 9, 2011
Farley’s & Sathers (F&S) has withdrawn its trademark infringement lawsuit against German confectioner Mederer GmbH after the company agreed to redesign its packaging, according to an article in the Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal.
The Round Lake- Minn., based F&S had alleged that Mederer’s e.frutti brand gummi snack bags used the same colors, layout and lettering as as a comparable F&S product.
A lawyer for F&S told the Business Journal that the suit was amicably resolved.
