Following Trade Secrets Litigation

Trade Secrets Can Cost A Lot of Bread (or Pan)

Two rival Hispanic bakeries in Portland are caught up in a trade secrets skirmish over recipes that two former employees took to another bakery. Notice the emphasis on former employees.

Key graph:

“These recipes and baking methods constituted valuable trade secrets not publicly known and … the cakes and pastries made from them were and are in great demand by the Hispanic community in the greater Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area.”

There may be hope for the Plaintiff in this case as it appears that his trade secrets protection plan was in place because the complaint attaches confidentiality agreements signed by the former employees. Bravo.
