Food Supply, a fruit and vegetable wholesale company in Tokyo’s Ota Ward, has launched a “drive-through greengrocer” to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and minimize its food waste. The company, which usually provides produce to around 5,000 restaurants, has seen over 70 percent of its client base at least temporarily close.

Now, customers park their cars in designated spaces, and a Food Supply staff member will load the trunk with a 5-kilogram bag of domestically produced rice and a mix of fruit and vegetables for ¥5,000. Customers pay from their cars without exiting the vehicle.
