In 2006 the development of ViCap started and Vicapsystems Ltd was founded in the same year. Vicapsystems Ltd is currently funded and managed by 3 Swiss investors (Andreas Schwyn, Conrad Weiss, Roger Wilfinger).
The development has been completed, patented and the ViCAP will be part of several future functional-beverage success stories.
The idea to develop a functional sports cap came up as Aqua Nova launched a drink which contained Q12. The problem with this drink was its short shelf life due to vitamins and other sensitive ingredients losing effectiveness over time when mixed with water.
ViCapSystems conceptualized the idea to separate the active ingredients from the liquid until the time of consumption and thus the idea for ViCAP was born.
