The global population has kept increasing, and accordingly, the problem of food shortage has been growing more serious. On the other hand, approximately one-third of all food produced is disposed of without being consumed, which is a problem. This social issue should be addressed through the cooperation of everyone involved in food, including those from national governments, consumers, and people working in food supply chains. The Asahi Group strives to reduce food loss by working together with the industry and distributors to control and reduce the amounts of various ingredients and products that are disposed of in the supply chain. We believe that we are responsible for doing so as a company that manufactures beverages and food.
The Asahi Group has established a management system under which the divisions in each company, from the division in charge of procurement to the division responsible for sales, work together in a cross-sectoral manner to address food loss issues in the business field of each.
The Asahi Group will strive to reduce the disposal of ingredients and products by accurately forecasting demand and ensuring the optimal supply of ingredients and products. At the same time, we will contribute to solving the issue by working together with the industry and distributors.
