CapAble Signs Agreement in Mexico
BioGaia's subsidiary CapAble has licenced the rights to use LifeTop(TM) Cap with Reuteri to the Mexican bottled water company Aqua Scandik.
LifeTop(TM) Cap is a bottle closure, which has been developed to create unique shelf stable probiotic drinks. The principle is built on the fact that sensitive ingredients that cannot be included in the drink are placed in a protective container in the cap and are first mixed in the drink at the time of consumption.
Aqua Scandik, who via local franchisees produces and distributes bottled water throughout the whole of Mexico, will launch water with three different flavours with BioGaia's probiotic L. reuteri. The products will be sold under the name Bio Scandik. Due to the rather extensive registration work for L. reuteri, Aqua Scandik expects to launch the products at the beginning of 2010.
"Mexico is one of the world's largest drinks markets and we are very happy to be able to initiate a collaboration with Aqua Scandik to launch LifeTop(TM) Cap with L. reuteri on this very exciting market." says Staffan Pålsson, President CapAble.
"It is very positive that CapAble has achieved its second contract within such a short time", says Peter Rothschild, President BioGaia.
