Easy to Open and Easy to Fill

The main issue when using standard hard capsules is their strong locking mechanism requiring sufficient grip strength and dexterity to reopen the capsule. Coni-Snap® sprinkle capsules have an innovative closure that needs less force to open so it can be opened much easier and safer. Based on the trusted Coni-Snap® design, it can be filled on the same machines as traditional capsules but will remain in place during packaging and transportation.
