World Patent Ratings, a specialized rating agency and expert network focused on intangible asset valuation, forecasts modest food industry growth and rising intangible asset valuations in 2017.

The company's Board includes notable figures such as Ambassador Dell Dailey, Former Navy Vice Admiral Al Konetzni, former US Attorney Matthew Whitaker, General Nitzan Nuriel of the Israel Defense Forces, Dr. Aileen Marty, and Scott Cooper, CEO of the World Patent Family of Companies and Director of The Cooper Idea Foundation.

"The food industry is poised for modest growth in 2017," said Scott Cooper, CEO of the World Patent Family of Companies, "Automation expenditures surpassed $7 billion in 2016, innovation continues to grow and along with that we expect to see rising intangible asset values."
