Flawless process

The capsule production plant is fully automated.

During the entire production process, the capsule is never handled by the operators.

Everything is carried out by a series of automations which convey, control
(by 5 cameras), box and palletize.

Once the pallet has been identified, labeled and filmed, it is taken to it’s rack, ready to be shipped.

This process eliminates the risk of non-compliant capsules in boxes.


The raw material with which the SQUARECAPS are made is 100% vegetable, resulting from food industry waste.

This material is certified by TUV
