The “State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China” has sent Tharos its “Notification of Allowing Invention Patent” for Tharos’ patent “Solvent-free process for obtaining phospholipids and neutral enriched krill oils“.
This is the Patent No. 200980162222.0 Issuance No. 2015070900122390 dated July 17th 2015. Upon the examination, the Chinese IP Office found that there is no reject reason, according to Article 39 of China Patent Law and Article 54 of Implementation of China Patent Law, for the above patent application to be granted patent right.

It comes at a time where all krill operators are fiercely working to increase the value out of every captured ton of raw fresh krill, within a market that looks for cleaner and cost competitive food ingredients.
