KAPIOKU : Origin

          KAPIOK (pronunciation: KA-PI-O-KU) comes from a combination of English abbreviations of our institute name (KAPI) and university (KU). The vowel “O” between KAPI and KU was modified from “@”, which means “at”. So, our brand full name is KAPI @ KU. Our logo has leaf linked from “I”, the last letter of our institute, to “K”, the first letter of university, shows the cooperation between these 2 organizations to create the products from truly “natural”.
