    I am about to launch a business selling fermented foods at farmer's markets. Does the name of my company/business (as a single proprietor) have to be the same as the product name on the packaging and on the banner at the booth? I would like to have one name for my business but have potentially several product lines.  Do I have to do more than one DBA in that case?

    Thanks for any help/advice.

    You can have a company name and a different brand name. I would suggest you use the Patent and Trademark Office's web site to check if your desired brand names are already in use.

    Consulting with a patent / trademark attorney would also be useful. Let me know if you need a referral.

    Regards

    i mean, you have to learn and search on google more and more to get any inspiration there.
