APIQE represents the biggest revolution in the beverage industry of the 21st century.
APIQE's system takes the water out of the filling, bottling and distribution of beverages. Instead, it adds back filtered tap water at the point of consumption. This adds a dimension of sustainability that has never existed before in the beverage industry and addresses the significant environmental waste and damage it causes.
APIQE meets world class, trademark standards of taste, quality and variety across principal and emerging beverage categories. Our multi-patented, IoT platform —consisting of an All-in-One smart appliance and advanced capsules -- makes a full range of beverages including coffee, beer, filtered, carbonated and flavored waters, soft-drinks, iced tea and juices, cider and mixed drinks.
APIQE offers choice for people to drink what they enjoy, as well as try new, healthy options and emerging and niche brands.
We started APIQE as we saw the beverage industry having its gigantic impact on the environment: shipping and driving water and other beverages around the globe.
All of this while the basic infrastructure for a sustainable alternative has been present all along.
Apiqe is unlocking that possibility by offering our system technology at point of consumption. APIQE's IoT Eco-System will only help us to be even more efficient, sustainable and impactful, while increasing our outreach to consumers and connect to the established industry.
An opportunity for Emerging and Mainstream Brands to do Well....
