Yamazaki Baking started making Japanese-style confectionery
in 1949, just one year after its founding, beginning with kirian (sweet bean paste), castella (sponge
cake) and yokan (sweet bean jelly). The delicious and
delicate taste of the company's Japanese-style confectionery
is achieved by skillfully incorporating seasonal ingredients
and traditional techniques. Yamazaki Baking has also applied
revolutions in technology to these traditional methods to
build mass-production lines for Japanese confectionery. Today,
Yamazaki Baking produces such confectionery as dango (skewered rice dumplings), daifuku (sweet bean filled rice cakes),
as well as yaki-gashi (pancake style sweets), mushipan (steamed cakes), castella, and yokan. Each of
the ingredients is carefully selected to meet the highest
quality standards, and then 50 years of expertise and technology
are applied to produce delightful Japanese confectionery in
the company's state-of-the-art facilities.
While respecting traditional flavors, Yamazaki Baking is always committed in its day-to-day efforts to enhancing the quality of our products. Furthermore, the company actively engages in new product development that meets contemporary needs. By proactively adopting advanced frozen technology and other technological innovations, Yamazaki Baking, through its Japanese-style confectionary business, continues to offer products of truly high value that satisfy our customers.
