Identifying opportunities and overcoming obstacles in the single-serve capsules industry
The second US edition of AMI’s Single-Serve Capsules conference provides a unique forum to debate and evaluate the global trends, innovations, challenges and opportunities facing the industry through the value chain of plastic and metal capsules. This includes capsule fillers, coffee roasters, capsule moulders, material suppliers, technology and machinery suppliers as well as companies expanding the scope of applications for single-serve capsules.
