Japanese Retailers and Restaurants moving towards biobased plastics

Posted on : 14 Nov, 2019

Now that the Japanese government is encouraging people and businesses to reduce plastic waste to prevent marine pollution, retailers and F&B companies are starting to use bioplastics.
Japan’s convenience store operator -  Seven-Eleven Japan Co. has started to use new packaging made of sugar cane-derived material  to wrap its popular rice balls.
As Seven-Eleven sells 2.2 billion onigiri rice balls annually, it is estimated that the move will reduce the use of plastic by 260 tons and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 403 tons a year.
Apart from Seven-Eleven, convenience store chain operator FamilyMart Co. has started to use recycled plastic packaging for its  containers selling cold noodles.
Meanwhile Ohsho Food Service Corp plans to replace its plastic straws with biodegradable ones and plastic spoons with biomass plastic ones at its 729 restaurants across the country.
