Seaweed Snack Company Comes to Hub to Protect Trademark

Background: Tara Treichel had the idea of starting an innovative seaweed company in Maine, offering kelp snacks and other seaweed products. Thus was born SeaMade. Tara aims to serve health-conscious consumers by providing education and convenient access to seaweed through tasty foods and other seaweed products. SeaMade is committed to socially responsible business and environmental sustainability and will donate a percentage of profits to ocean conservation.

Legal Need: Tara wanted to make sure her brand was protected. She came to the Legal Food Hub with questions about her trademark.

The Relationship:  The Legal Food Hub matched Tara with a small, dynamic firm in Portland, Maine—Opticliff Law.  The firm’s pro bono legal assistance has helped launch Tara’s product on firm legal footing.
