In this paper, the analysis was conducted on the premise that “Resilience” is a concept to realize “Sustainability” of food systems, which is implemented by minimizing out-of-stock items and food loss and waste by stable and advanced demand forecasting even under difficult circumstances. As the data, the number of customers purchased and the correction rate of the demand forecast during the self-restraint period of the high-low pricing notice of food supermarkets, which is a COVID-19 measure, were used.As a result of the analysis, there was a suggestion that the number of customers was leveled, but no change was found in the accuracy of demand forecast. However, the self-restraint of the High-Low Pricing announcement may have contributed to leveling the number of customers and stabilizing the demand forecast accuracy even during the COVID-19 countermeasure period. Therefore, the resilience of food supermarkets analyzed in this study can be evaluated as high.
