Oisix ra daichi will work to establish resource circularity across its entire value chain, including the production, distribution, and consumption stages, in order to make effective use of limited resources. We will also work with customers, business partners, and local communities to effectively utilize resources and reduce waste in order to contribute to a sustainable, recycling-based society.
The Group has built a growth model based on subscription food services and developed multiple businesses centered on the domestic home delivery business. Thanks to this business model, food waste levels are low across their respective supply chains from production (farms), distribution, to consumption (tables).
We have built a proprietary model that involves upstream producers, a midstream distribution platform, and downstream consumers—in other words, every stage of the supply chain—and are using our accumulated know-how to realize “sustainable retail,” thus reducing food waste while contributing to a wide range of social solutions.
||Help reduce food waste in production areas by connecting and coordinating directly with relevant areas.
||Reduce food waste in our own distribution process through a subscription model that facilitates demand forecasting and allows demand to be managed.
||Help to reduce food waste at people’s homes by providing services such as Kit Oisix and Chanto Oisix, which prevent food from being wasted.
The Group promotes the reduction of food waste through operational improvements in the supply chain and recycling by methods such as the composting of food scraps generated at production sites.
Environmental Considerations in Packaging
For Kit Oisix and other products we handle, including produce and processed foods, we are transitioning to more environmentally conscious packaging at a rate of 50% or more within four years.
We have begun using plant-based plastics for the inner produce wrappings used in our Kit Oisix meal kit, which alone will reduce CO2 emissions by 10 tons. Including both inner and outer packaging, CO2 emissions will be reduced by 23 tons.

Increasing the value of food waste ingredients
Creating new value for food waste through upcycling
In the fields and factories, there are many ingredients that are thrown away because of their poor appearance or texture.
By upcycling, we will create new ingredients that are delicious and surprising, and change the culture of discarding.
In July 2021, we launched "Chips You Can Eat Here" and as of March 2022, we had developed 9 original products. In the nine months since its launch, we have realized a reduction of approximately 29 tons in food waste at production sites.

Suggestions for enjoying irregular ingredients
Radish Boya has launched "Fuzoroi Radish," an initiative to reduce food waste and support producers launched in 2021.
By communicating the various backgrounds of non-standardized food ingredients, we are providing new value to customers who are highly interested in cooking.
In the first year of sales, approximately 200 tons of food was rescued.
