At a recent conference at MIT on business opportunities in Brazil, one of the speakers summed up: "In a word, Brazil is juicy."

Virtually all of Koike's critical raw materials come from the Northern Hemisphere, and all of his customers are there as well. The value-the real "juice"-is created and captured in Brazil.
