Abstract

Japan's aging population and increasing medical costs threaten the sustainability of its healthcare system. Society 5.0, Japan's growth strategy, calls for a paradigm shift in healthcare based on digital technology. Health is a topic of great public concern, and diet and nutrition are at the heart of health. Many different values are used to define health, and Society 5.0 focuses on creating personalized values for different styles of eating and health. Health is already at the core of global business, and Japan, which is ahead of the rest of the world in its super-aging society, has a unique opportunity to be the first to create new business solutions for diet and nutrition.
