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”.
