Protecting our Business and Reputation
On Thursday National Pasteurized Eggs filed a law suit against Michael Foods Inc. for patent and trademark infringement. While we wish there were other ways of remedying the situation, it is our position that Michael Foods has violated our intellectual property. We are a small company compared to Michael Foods – they are about 50 times larger than us in revenues – so we thought about doing this very carefully and felt this step is necessary. We have built a business and a reputation we are proud of, based on quality, expertise in pasteurization, service to our customers and a commitment to safe foods. We simply want to protect all of that.
