Finnish Halton has been selected to provide indoor air solutions for Japan’s culinary and confectionery students in teaching kitchens and restaurants.

Halton will deliver the solutions to 13 teaching kitchens and four restaurants at the culinary and pastry art schools of Taiwa Gakuen Education in Kyoto, Japan by the end of October. The order comprises Halton’s ventilated ceilings and, as the first Asian delivery, Halton’s Human Centric Lighting solution that can be integrated into a ventilated ceiling. The total value of the deal is approximately two million euros.

Taiwa believes that the quality of indoor air is particularly important for culinary and pastry art education.

“In our new school building, we wanted to invest in the best technologies to be able to offer our students and staff an environment that is as safe and comfortable as possible,” say president Nakata of the Culinary Art College and president Samejima of the Pastry Art College of Taiwa Gakuen Education. “We believe that a good indoor environment will also show in learning results, when people are feeling well and their energy level remains high.”

Halton has supplied about 650 customer projects to Japan since 1998. According to Halton’s director of foodservice operation Georges Gaspar, Japan is a great example of a quality-conscious market that suits Halton’s solutions perfectly.

“Taiwa is a very important customer for us, and we are extremely happy about this deal that allows us to use our solutions to support indoor environmental values that are important for both parties,” he notes.
