Parijat Industries builds war chest of international trademarks in 45 countries
Aug. 14, 2017
A good number of Indian companies have built international brands.
Parijat Industries,a manufacturer of high quality agrochemical formulations is one of India's leading branded agrochemical exporters with a formidable war chest of international brands and registered trademarks. With exports spanning countries of Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America and Oceania and CIS; Parijat and its international subsidiaries has quietly embarked on an international brand building strategy acquiring a war chest of trademarks in a formidable 45 countries worldwide and another 10 in the pipeline. This includes its mother brand Parijat and, or trademarks for its branded formulated products. Trademarks for branded formulations have been acquired in countries spanning different continents such as England, France, Canada, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sudan, Kenya, Iraq, Russia, Georgia, Peru, Ecuador, and Guyana. Apart from these the company already has over 60 trademarked brands in the Indian market where it sells in 22 Indian states.
Acquiring a brand can take a substantial amount of time and investment and this can span from 6 months to up to 3 years. If objections arise and litigations follow this period can extend into years. Acquiring a pesticide formulation registration in any country is a lengthy affair and at an average can take 2-3 years at the minimum. Therefor the branding and trademark must go hand in hand with the product registration. Parijat has built up a daunting 400 product registrations in 45 countries, which form the bedrock upon which trademarked brands are being built in international markets, and Parijat is looking to cash in the coming years.
Keshav Anand, Chairman and Managing Director of Parijat says "putting in place the registrations and trademarks globally is a strategic initiative for acquiring the springboard to enable Parijat with the ability to ramp up, nonlinear volumes in each market as opportunity arises."
