Los Angeles, CA—Continuing the celebration of its 50th anniversary, Wakunaga of America hosted a cocktail reception at Natural Products Expo West. Guests, including Wakunaga’s international distributors, local dignitaries, and industry veterans, were treated to a special performance by Taiko Project, famous for their Japanese drum show.
