The project that was selected this time was the “Food Loss Reduction Project through Promoting MottECO through Industry-Government-Academia Collaboration,” which is an unprecedented project in the nation to tackle the social issue of “reducing food loss and food waste” through industry-government-academia collaboration. This is an initiative that takes on the challenge of providing solutions. ◆Industry, government, and academia play the following roles according to their respective characteristics.
・“Industry”: MottECO introduction and practice by multiple businesses that transcend competitive boundaries
・“Government”: Promoting initiatives in accordance with the messages from related ministries (national) and resolving regional issues (local governments)
・”Academics”: Surveys, research, information provision that are difficult for business operators, and dissemination to Generation Z

mottECO’s initiative is that if a customer wishes to take home food that they cannot finish, we will provide them with a leaflet and a container to ensure safe consumption, and the customer will be asked to take the food home at their own risk. The aim is to create and spread a culture in which people take their own responsibility for leftover food and do not throw it away in the garbage.
In 2021, the Ministry of the Environment announced the following: “Take home leftover food at your own risk = MottECO
(Motteco)” was announced, Hotel Nikko Tsukuba introduced MottECO in July 2023 and began efforts to popularize it. Last year, as a consortium, we received the “Reiwa 5th Food Loss Reduction Promotion Award.
