We obtained our patents thanks to fullness resource, creativity, foresight and research investments combined with the availability of the latest CAD generation equipment. Currently, UNIFILL has several patents in different countries of the world to include: the innovative squeezable shape with straw and the peelable shape with asymmetrical stick
