Ahn, Joong-Hyuk, the representative of SCENTONE, said "KAFEMA, which signed the MOU this time, is a comprehensive coffee company that carries out the business of café, roasting, and education. We're very happy that SCENTONE's aroma education has regularly started in Russia, a country that has been evaluated as a huge potential market like China through signing the MOU with KAFEMA."

He also added, "As the only flavor analysis company in the world, it is rapidly becoming the essential education system of major food and beverage industry all over the world, not only in Korea, but also in the United States, Europe, China, Vietnam as well as Russia. We will continue to cultivate high-quality coffee experts and further develop this industry."
