Freshorize & The Barista Cup
The company was founded in 2002 by Aziz Patel, after having an idea whilst on-board a flight sitting next to a toilet to combine a soap dispenser and air freshener into one product. They are now a leading supplier of fragranced hand soaps and air fresheners to the aviation industry.
After 15 years based at UEL's Docklands Campus, Aziz is now trying to break into the coffee market with his latest innovative product, The Barista Cup, which allows the user to brew freshly-ground and perfectly smooth tasting coffee instantaneously, whilst using fewer coffee grounds.
Freshorize has employed three graduates from UEL, all of whom play vital roles in Freshorize as well as aiding the development of the Barista Cup. The most recent addition from UEL, Sid, who graduated in Product Design in 2017, joined Freshorize after successfully completing his studies.
"It's such a great opportunity to work at a real-world business which is based where you study. I look forward to working with all the new people I meet through Freshorize."
