Making 50,000 beeswax candles daily by hand
Beeswax candles sell for roughly twice as much as the white paraffin candles that have become the norm in the modern age. The warm color tones of its flames and its lack of soot along with its smooth fragrances make them popular with users who seek a rich life.
Beeswax is delicate and is unsuited to fully automated machine production. Currently, 4 workers manually produce 50,000 candles a day and ship them all over the country.
Applying candle-making technologies to the medical field
In recent years they have received requests for applying the candle-making technologies to other fields. For instance, medical capsules made from wax are being tested in the medical field to prevent chemical reactions at inadvertent moments and to cause only desired reactions. “If there are other areas that aren’t limited to making candles where we can apply our technologies, we’d like to actively take part in it” positively affirms Mr. Torii.
