Anheuser-Busch accuses MillerCoors of theft of trade secrets

Posted by William J. Cook | Oct 24, 2019 | 0 Comments

Protecting sensitive information is a goal that many companies in Florida and elsewhere may feel is vital to the success of a business. When a company feels that another party has sought to gain access to its trade secrets, it may wish to know more about the available options to help safeguard its interests. Anheuser-Busch has recently filed a theft of trade secrets lawsuit against MillerCoors accusing the company of stealing information on product recipes.

According to reports, the allegations of a potential theft of trade secrets is the latest complaint during an ongoing feud between the two companies. In the complaint, Anheuser-Busch reportedly claims to have discovered evidence indicating that former employees who now work for MillerCoors took measures to obtain recipes on two popular brands from current employees. The company asserts that these individuals then proceeded to share this proprietary information with their new employer.

However, representatives from MillerCoors reportedly deny receiving such confidential information. The company also states that Anheuser-Busch has already released information on product ingredients and states that their recipes are listed on each of their products. The company claims that the allegations are merely a form of retaliation stemming from recent legal proceedings regarding claims of false advertising.

Theft of trade secrets disputes can be hotly-contested matters that can have a significant impact on the futures of all companies involved. Those who encounter allegations of this nature and wish to gain insight on how best to approach the situation could benefit from consulting with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. An attorney in Florida can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and assist in forming a strategy to pursue the best outcome achievable through the necessary channels.
