BioGaia AB has concluded a global collaborative agreement with Bericap Sarl, the French subsidiary to the German Bericap Group, which is one of the world´s largest manufacturers of caps and other package closures, with 20 factories in 18 countries that produce approx. 50 billion closures per year.
The agreement means that the two companies will collaborate in the development, manufacture, marketing and sales of BioGaia´s patented cap, Life Top Cap, which was developed to protect sensitive ingredients, such as probiotics, from humidity, heat and light in PET bottles.
The Bericap Group will market Life Top Cap to its customers throughout the world, produce it and develop new variations to different bottle types and sizes. BioGaia will sell and market the product and through its 50%-owned company Two Pac, handle the ingredients and produce the aluminium blisters that protect these ingredients and that are mounted in Life Top Cap.
This collaboration with BioGaia follows several years of searching by Bericap to find the best compromise between an efficient system of protection for the ingredients against humidity and a simple and cost effective solution that is easy to understand and to use by the consumer says Dominique-Paul Vallé, CEO, Bericap Sarl.
We have already had many benefits of collaborating with Bericap and we are very happy that they have chosen BioGaia as partner in this growing segment of the market. BeriCap will help us to enter the market in a completely different way to how we otherwise could have done. comments Peter Rothschild, President.
