Titans of Industry featuring Mika Halttunen

"I believe people make the company. We can buy machines and build buildings, but people are the essence. I believe we have a unique culture"

Mika Halttunen featured in FSCI Consultant Magazine - Q4 2018

Mika Halttunen, The Chairman of Halton Group has been featured in FCSI's Q4 Foodservice Consultant Magazine, Titans of Industry. Below are a few comments from the article. 

Setting aside his dreams of rock 'n' roll stardom, Mika Halttunen instead took over the reins of  his father's business, building Halton Group into a huge, global enterprise. "It's been a great journey," he tells Michael Jones, Foodservice Consultant Magazine

Halton work closely with FCSI members in order to better understand their customers, says Halttunen. "Consultants are the interface to customers. They come up with new trends and concepts and are crucial to bringing new ideas. They are a very important group of opinion leaders."

For Halttunen this has led to some great friendships with members. William Caruso FFCSI and Jim Petersen FCSI have joined his Halton Friends Blues Jam band for gigs during industry shows. "It's a dream come true – playing blues and rock 'n' roll with friends."
