TFK Corporation, a Japanese subsidiary of Singapore in-flight food catering group SATS, has achieved Halal certification for its kitchen in Tokyo’s Narita airport.

This will allow it to prepare certified Halal meals to cater to the growing number of Muslim travellers, TFK said on Wednesday.

The certification was awarded by Warees Halal, a division of Warees Investments, which is in turn a subsidiary of Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (Muis).

TFK, the first Japanese airline caterer to set up a dedicated Halal kitchen, has invested 60 million yen in buying new kitchen equipment and expanding its Halal kitchen output from 3,000 meals to 6,000 meals a day.
