"We are market innovators and we provide various industries with opportunities and ideas for the launch of new products," said Alaor Pereira Lino, President of AQIA Química Industrial. "Through this joint venture our aim is to segment the market and add value to the components extracted by Cooxupé from green coffee oil and solid residues, thus opening the doors of new markets including the cosmetic and nutritional markets," he adds.
