Nissin Cup Noodles demand soars as COVID-19 keeps people home

Japanese food maker pushes '3-for-$1' deals to increase sales in US

Nissin Foods' share price recently hit an all-time high, helped by stronger sales in the U.S. The company is nearing its 1 trillion yen valuation target, set by CEO Koki Ando four years ago.
