PureCircle and Almendra Resolve US Patent Litigation

PureCircle filed a patent infringement case against the Thailand-headquartered company last April

PureCircle and Almendra say they have reached a settlement in a patent dispute in the United States for Almendra’s Steviarome products and use thereof.

At the end of 2020, the two companies voluntarily resolved the litigation with all claims and counterclaims subsequently being dismissed.

As part of the settlement, Almendra signed a license agreement with PureCircle, which allows Almendra to continue selling its Steviarome flavour ingredients worldwide.
