Shrimp festival! To commemorate this, we interviewed Tokyo Metropolitan Governor Yuriko Koike on September 6 (Friday). The Japan Shrimp Association has shrimp on the “Shrimp Day” established on Respect for the Aged Day! Will be held at Toyosu Market. This year is scheduled to be held on September 14th, and we are preparing to have many Tokyo residents. Shrimp festival! The theme is the coexistence of “Let’s eat fish” and “Let’s protect fish”. Food stalls and plastic waste are sold at the food stalls supervised by the masters of cooking, while serving delicious shrimp dishes using whole shrimp without waste, to pass on the Sea of ​​Grace to the generation of children and grandchildren. We plan to make efforts to reduce this. ――The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has set forth “Promotion of Food Loss Reduction”. What initiatives have you taken so far? Governor of Tokyo “The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has so far established a partnership meeting consisting of business operators and consumer organizations, held various seminars and campaigns, and made efforts to reduce food loss, including the effective use of disaster-preserved foods. We have advanced. ” ――What are some ways to reduce food loss that is easy for Tokyo residents to tackle? Governor of Tokyo “For example, routine checks for refrigerator stock before shopping, correct understanding of the deadline display, cooking as much as you can eat, and devising a storage method when you can’t eat up, to reduce food loss. In addition, excessive demand for freshness and freshness of food will lead to food disposal at stores, etc., so we would like you to be wise when you buy food. ” ――What is important as a company’s initiative? Governor of Tokyo “I think it is necessary to firmly establish a review of the one-third rule, which is a commercial practice in the food distribution industry, and to display the expiration date. In addition, for example, if you are a restaurant, you can prepare a small menu in the menu, or if you are a retailer, you can eliminate unsold items by closing sales. I would like you to proceed with efforts to reduce losses. ” ――The 1/3 rule is a custom that we want the fish industry to eliminate. Shrimp festival! At the Food Loss stand, five masters of cooking are within the best-before date, but they will use the shrimp that cannot be shipped because the shipping deadline has expired. Recently, the impact of plastic waste on the sea has been reported as a waste problem. In Tokyo, you are also working to reduce disposable plastics. Governor of Tokyo As for plastic, millions of tons of plastic waste flows into the sea every year, threatening the marine ecosystem. Currently, the Tokyo Metropolitan Waste Council is debating “the way of measures for the sustainable use of plastics”. At the same time, the city itself started with a spirit of starting from the beginning. In order to tackle this problem, the “Plastic Reduction Policy for Tokyo Metropolitan Government” was established and implemented on June 5 of this year. ――Specifically, what are you doing? Governor of Tokyo At events hosted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the number of disposable plastics that are not necessary is reduced, and if plastic use is unavoidable, products that use recycled plastics and products that use biomass plastics that consider sustainability are considered. It is. In addition, at meetings in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, disposable plastic products and plastic containers and packaging are prohibited in principle. –Shrimp festival! However, I would like to propose a new stand event that is suitable for the “era of era” that considers the environment such as the sea by making all containers to be made of bioplastic. Lastly, please give a message to the residents and businesses regarding the reduction of food loss and plastic waste. Governor of Tokyo We waited to review disposable lifestals that generate large amounts of food loss and plastic waste, review disposable lifestals, and convert to a recycling-oriented social system that reuses and recycles resources as much as possible. There is no situation. To that end, the actions of the citizens, business owners, and individuals are very important. We would like to see “Shrimp Festival!” As an opportunity to review how resources are used, and start with familiar efforts such as My Bag and My Bottle. –The Japan Shrimp Association would like to cooperate as a Tokyo citizen.
