Birth of a timeless classic

From their first 5 Italian-style cappuccino drinks to today, with over 30 years of experience, Caprimo without question revolutionised the vending machine market with its delicious ready-mixed instant beverages. Their success would lead to many unexplored flavour innovations. Still today, Caprimo introduces people to exciting new product launches!

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.
