Shelf life technology that helps prolong and maintain food taste and quality longer
On 31 May 2019, Japan enacted a law aimed at reducing food wastage. Although there is no need to mention that in both manufacturing and sales measures are taken to prevent food loss, for manufacturers, two countermeasures are necessary: “Reduce” and “Reuse”.
Concerning “Reuse”, the Food Recycling Law was enacted in the 2000s and amended in 2015 to increase recycling targets according to industry type. On the other hand, to “Reduce” or to implement food waste reduction is an industry priority, and manufacturers are forced to carry out this countermeasure now. To minimize food wastage, it is important to promote long shelf life technology, prolonging and maintaining the taste and quality of food.
Food Long Life Japan features a variety of long-shelf-life technologies for food loss reduction and will target the introduction of these technologies to manufacturers and salespeople.
Exhibitors present papers introducing new products, research results and new business development announcements. In the Exhibitor Presentations, there will be special theme sessions, such as long-life technology to reduce food loss and effective utilization technology for unused resources, which will draw greater audiences to the presentations.
