Convenience store firms reviewing business model

Three major convenience store operators are trying to reduce the amount of unsold food, and as part of these efforts, Seven-Eleven Japan Co. and Lawson, Inc. have started reviewing the fixed price sales system that has become synonymous with convenience stores themselves, together with around-the-clock operations.

Shunsuke Tanaka 和 Toru Ando / Yomiuri Shimbun 三家主要的便利店经营者正在努力减少未售食品的数量,作为这些努力的一部分,Seven-Eleven 日本公司和 Lawson 公司已经开始检查固定价格的销售系统,这个系统已经成为便利店本身的代名词,并与24小时运营一起。

As their franchisees experience severe business conditions, mainly due to the saturation of stores and the industry’s labor shortage, the business model that promoted their growth has reached a turning point.


Reducing food waste has been a challenge for the convenience store industry for a long time. The government set a goal of reducing food waste across all food-related industries, including convenience stores, to about 2.7 million tons by fiscal 2030. This is tantamount to half the amount of food waste in fiscal 2000.

长期以来,减少食物浪费一直是便利店行业面临的挑战。 政府设定了一个目标,到2030年,将包括便利店在内的所有食品相关行业的食品浪费减少到270万吨左右。 这相当于2000财政年度食物浪费量的一半。

Researchers there will comprehensively study cancer immunotherapy from the basics to applications to boost the body's defenses to fight the disease.
