Idaho-based N2 Packaging Systems has filed a lawsuit against the Canadian company, N2 Pack Canada, for an alleged intellectual property theft.

N2 Packaging is known for its patented nitrogen-based packaging processes for cannabis products. According to the company’s complaint to the Arizona state court, the Canadian N2 Pack conspired with third-party companies to usurp business opportunities in Arizona, and elsewhere in the United States.

It further alleges that Canadian company Nitrotin, Inc. in Kelowna, B.C. and created a “copy cat” website to sell N2 Packaging’s nitrogen-based packaging without the company’s knowledge or consent.

“We will take any and all steps necessary to protect our intellectual property and proprietary packaging processes,” said N2 Packaging CEO Scott Martin said in a statement Aug. 12.

N2 Packaging is asking those who have been contacted by N2 Pack Canada, Nitrotin or others outside of N2 Packaging to reach out to the company representatives.
