True to Form: Beaverton Foods' Acquires Pacific Farms Authentic Wasabi
A wasabi introduction adds a degree of authenticity to the popular sauce.
Beaverton Foods notes the market for authentic wasabi products has grown tremendously, and that recognition prompted the company to acquire the Pacific Farms brand a year ago. Now, the group is expanding from the specialty condiments aisle and into delicatessens and restaurants with new Pacific Farms Authentic Wasabi.
The 1oz, refrigerated single-serve cup joins the 3.5oz jar that launched in supermarkets last spring.
Beaverton Foods’ CEO Domonic Biggi states: “Beaverton Foods wanted to fill a much-needed gap. Most wasabi products now available in the marketplace are made with mustard flour, horseradish powder, fillers and artificial colors—not authentic wasabi.”
