Before you get any bad ideas, African Dream Foods (ADF) doesn’t want you seasoning the animals at the zoo. They want you to enjoy their products by purchasing them at the gift shop and cooking with them somewhere else. The company has expanded into 30 zoo gift shops over the past year, confirming the popularity of their product line of sauces, salts and seasonings in the zoo gift shop niche. Each sale at the zoo helps directly support African wildlife, while introducing the tastes of Africa to a US audience. Throughout 2022, ADF has also expanded into dozens of other retailers and hot sauce specialty stores around the country.
African Dream Foods is now carried at 30 zoos around the US, some of which are below and additional retailers can be found here.
