Wasabi Sauce Bottle

A first generation Wasabi Salad Dressing from the AFC Corporation with a first generation AFC logo with two pieces of nigiri sushi printed in the middle. It has a green screw-on top, with a printed plastic that wraps around the body. In the center are the words "Wasabi salad Dressing", and NET 10.6 FL OZ (280ml) is written below. The background includes an image of two wasabi plants, and to the left of the front cover is a paragraph that describes the ingredients, suggestions, and a barcode. The other side of the packaging lists the product’s Nutritional Facts.
AFC extended their product line to include sushi related products to diversify the consumer’s sushi eating experience, and popularize ingredients used in traditional Japanese foods. The Wasabi Salad Dressing is available for purchase at AFC’s supermarket locations, on their online website, and is included in their “Ultimate Sushi Kit”. This dressing is made from grated wasabi and adds a Japanese style to any salad.
