"We don't just sell capsules, we sell a whole service,"​ a spokesperson for Capsugel told NutraIngredients.com this week at the Vitafoods International trade fair.

Capsugel, a subsidiary of Pfizer, and a leader in two-piece capsules, is currently promoting a vegetarian delivery for liquids and semi-solids. The vegetarian liquid capsules are made of a cellulose derivative called HPMC (hydroxypropyl methycellulose) and, the company claims, can meet the needs of "today's dietary supplement customer"​.

"The capsules deliver liquid and semi-solid formulations in vegetarian capsules with an invisible seal without banding,"​ added the Capsugel spokesperson.

Capsugel has production plants around the world with two in Europe at Bornmem in Belgium and Colmar in France.
