Softigel at Vitafoods Europe, Switzerland

Softigel has announced it will be showcasing its products at Vitafoods Europe, Switzerland.

Taking place from 15 May to 17 May, visitors to Vitafoods Europe will get to explore a new world of opportunities for both health and nutrition with Softigel. They will get to see, touch and taste unique formulations in nutritional gummies and novel technologies for fixed-dose combinations.

Softigel’s booth will be an interactive and captivating experience, focusing especially on its innovative platform technologies.

In addition, Colombian coffee tasting and treats will be available to make your experience more enjoyable.

Visit Softigel at stand E24 and discover a new face on nutraceuticals with its latest softgel and gelatin-related technologies.

At this moment, three aspects are moving market growth:

  • Ageing population – Softigel sees each day that senior consumers do not want to be defined by their age and wish to maintain their same active lifestyle
  • The fitness move – consumers who are in search of preventive measures instead of reactive measures to avoid future health problems
  • Self-care – new and more specialised supplements need to be developed for consumers that are more concerned with their wellbeing

From young to old, and whether it’s a daily walk or a marathon, consumers understand the importance of having a healthy lifestyle.

Also, Softigel has detected that consumers are in search of alternatives to traditional medicines and capsule forms, and technology strongly influences the way consumers manage their health. They are also constantly looking for natural options in order to increase their nutritional needs with clean labels with natural ingredients, and all of these results in the search for customised solutions focused on specific needs.

Softigel by procaps is addressing these needs by introducing novel technologies and formats that not only bring quality and product shelf-life to products, but solves the need of combining different products into one single dose, reducing the number of doses to take per day, and offering a more enjoyable and pleasant way of taking vitamins, supplements and medication.

Softigel’s latest technology UnigelTM incorporates the benefits of the soft gelatin capsules, while providing an option of combining different dosage forms (tablets, capsules, hard capsules) within one single softgel. This technology allows combining multiple active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) previously incompatible in other dosage forms, allows having different release profiles in one product, and offers a great number of benefits to the consumer in terms of therapy adherence, preference and consumer experience.

Softigel has 18 formulas for general nutrition, beauty and sports categories that bring unique combinations, shapes and colours to ensure an unparalleled consumer experience.

Innovation sits at the heart of our business and this is why we continuously develop new products and formats, having always in mind that our goal is to deliver an enjoyable consumer experience through our advanced softgel technologies, and the company has been doing this for 40 years.

In today’s health-conscious world, people tend to turn to simplicity and on-the-go products that can assure easiness and consumer compliance for any treatment. Softigel’s mission is to deliver better nutrition and health through innovative platforms, and allow its customers to become a standout player in their field.
