"Japan is the largest market in the world for coffee extract, especially for canned beverages or a variety of food preparations," said Juan Francisco Jaramillo, Market Coordinator for Café Liofilizado Buendía.
In addition to extract, the offering will include ready-to-drink, freeze-dried coffee. "Asia is definitely the market with the highest growth potential.
