BOLLINGBROOK, Ill., Feb. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — True to its mantra that a healthy life is an integrated concept that is only possible on a healthy planet, Beko Home Appliances, the U.S. subsidiary of Arçelik, one of the world’s largest kitchen appliance manufacturers, has formed the industry’s first design council that includes not only leading home and kitchen designers but also registered dietitians, health and wellness experts, recipe developers and thought-leaders in sustainable living.
Healthy Kitchen Council to explore the kitchen as the intersection of personal and planetary health in the American home
The 12-member 2022 Beko Healthy Kitchen Council, announced today, is part of the Beko Healthy Kitchen, which is being unveiled at the 2022 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) to explore the kitchen as the intersection of personal and planetary health in the American home. Beko’s vision is to transform the U.S. industry through expert councils, inspired kitchen designs and buildouts, alliances with like-minded brands like Dole and 35 new cooking, cooling and cleaning products with proprietary technologies and features that empower Americans to lead healthier lives while contributing to a healthier planet.
The inaugural Beko Healthy Kitchen Council came together for the first time in September 2021 at the first-ever Beko Healthy Kitchen Summit in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains to participate in three days of trends presentations, brainstorming and workshops on healthy, sustainable kitchen design led by brand, industry and media experts.
In addition to advising Beko on appliance design and functionality, Council members began development of several of the healthy kitchen designs being presented at this year’s KBIS and realized in homes later this year and beyond.
“I’m ecstatic to welcome our inaugural Beko Healthy Kitchen Council – giants in the worlds of kitchen design, health and wellness,” said Beko Home Appliances President Zach Elkin.
