Trademark Class 31: Grains, Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 31 is opted to register a trademark for grains and agricultural, horticultural, and forestry products.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 31 includes grains and agricultural, horticultural and forestry products not included in other classes; live animals; fresh fruits and vegetables; seeds; natural plants and flowers; foodstuffs for animals; malt. It also includes raw woods; raw cereals; fertilized eggs for hatching; molluscs, and crustacean (live).
