Birth of a timeless classic
The 5 first vending mixes launched under Danish dairy company MD Foods.
The enormous popularity of the classic Italian cappuccino in Europe led to the launch of a world premiere: the first ever ready-mixed cappuccino for vending machines.
The ready-mixed vending drinks of MD Foods are named Caprimo. It is a reference to the beautiful Italian island of Capri, just south of the Gulf of Naples.
1996 – 2000
AM Foods was established in 1996 when MD Foods in Sønderby Denmark moved its production to the state-of-the-art production site in Kågeröd, Sweden owned by the dairy company Arla.
AM Foods offers a complete product range of more than 100 high-quality instant beverages, both branded and private label, dedicated for vending, catering and retail channels. The branded assortment is marketed under the brand names Caprimo® and Ögonblink®. Caprimo introduces a range of flavoured chocolate drinks (orange, mint) and cappuccinos to the Scandinavian Retail business.
