MariJoin Mari Toyoda, the creator of Wafu®, and learn first hand how to make your own sushi at home.

The seeds of the Wafu® story were planted when Mari Toyoda, a trained Japanese chef, immigrated to Montreal, Canada.

Mari grew up working in her parent’s Tokyo restaurant. In Montreal, she started a sushi business and a sushi workshop on the side. And it was here that Wafu® truly got started.

To serve with her sushi, Mari wanted a sesame dressing like the ones that she had grown up eating. Something smooth… creamy… tasty. Something authentically Japanese.

In her own kitchen, she created what was to become the first Wafu product: a versatile salad dressing with no colours, no artificial flavours, no trans fats… had almost no cholesterol or saturated fats… and was 100% delicious.

Today, Wafu® continues to bring the authentic flavours of Japan from the east to the west, so everyone can enjoy them.
