Sushi Tray, Large

Description
This sushi tray is from the Advanced Fresh Concepts Corporation, a fresh prepackaged sushi distributor at supermarkets nationwide. The tray comes in two parts; a clear plastic lid and a red and black counterpart. The base is a red tray with black rims, which have golden brush strokes on each edge. There are several indented markings such as "BF" and "70" on the tray.The clear plastic lid is shaped to leave space for the sushi inside, and allows for the contents of the tray to remain visible to the customers.
This is an example of a large sushi tray that is used for prepackaged sushi. They often consist of rolls, nigiri, or a variety of sushi types, and include a side of wasabi and gari (pickled ginger). A single serving packet of soy sauce and a pair of disposable chopsticks is provided upon purchase. These trays are disposable, and therefore these prepackaged sushi trays make a convenient lunch option.
