"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.

In addition to supply the Brazilian market, there are great export expectations for the AQIA Coffee line in Latin America, the Unite States and Europe, explain the managers of Cooxupé and AQIA. With a turnover of 200 million Brazilian reais (55 million US dollars), AQIA Química Industrial also expects the joint venture to increase net sales by 10 million reais (2.7 million US dollars) over five years.
