The Hattori Nutrition College offers the training course based on “shoku iku” a concept crated by the president, Yukio Hattori, which in kanji can be translated to ‘food for the benefit of the people’. In this way, food is a way to cultivate our body and mind, and students at this college are trained as both nutritionists and chefs who create delicious food while taking full consideration of health, safety, and the environment. Hattori Nutrition College is pleased to be teaching in this forward-thinking manner and firmly believes that people especially in the 21st century ask themselves both if this food is delicious but also if this food is healthy and good for one’s body. Hattori also believes that passion & excitement are the driving forces to discover and open the hidden doors of your personal potentiality from which you grow, and the aim in everything one does at this school is to cultivate & stimulate your passion for food.
