Bread firm will appeal court ruling

BREAD company Brennans will appeal a decision that its packages of wholewheat bread are "confusingly similar" to that of its rival McCambridge.

The decision means the company might not have to remove its product in its current packaging from shop shelves.

Mr Justice Michael Peart yesterday granted McCambridge Ltd an injunction restraining Joseph Brennan Bakeries, trading as Brennans, from selling its bread in its current packaging. However, he put a one-week stay on the order to allow Brennans to lodge an appeal to the Supreme Court.

This means that Brennans has until next Saturday, December 10, to remove its wholewheat bread in its current packaging from shops.

But the company will lodge its appeal with the Supreme Court within the next week.

Mr Justice Peart reserved judgment on the costs issue until next week.
