Starbucks today announced a new program to reduce food waste at select Starbucks stores across Japan. To ensure unsold food does not go to waste, participating stores have the option of marking down select bakery products by 20% several hours prior to closing. As part of Starbucks ongoing commitment to fight against hunger, the company will donate part of the revenue of these discounted sales to Musubie, a local non-profit which provides meals for children across Japan.
