Yamazaki Baking Co., Ltd., was founded in Japan on March 9, 1948, by Tojuro Iijima and began as a provider of reasonably priced, fresh, high-quality baked goods in the post- World War II era, when most of Japan was still experiencing severe food shortages. Yamazaki Baking modernized through aggressive technological advances and the installation of state-of-the-art equipment and systems from Europe and North America. At the same time, the company expanded its offerings, introducing breads and other products from around the world into the Japanese market and contributing to the enhancement of Japanese lifestyles and dietary culture. As a result, Yamazaki Baking is No.1 bakery in Japan.
For over sixty years since its founding, Yamazaki Baking has significantly broadened its operations with current employees of around 18,000 and 27 factories across Japan. Today, the company’s lineup centers bread, sweet buns, Japanese-style confectionery, Western-style confectionery, processed bread and prepared rice and side dishes, as well as jam, desserts and prepared foods in retort pouches. Every day, our trucks run 460,000 km per day across Japan or equal to approximately 11 times the earth circumference to provide the customers with a wide range of baked goods in fresh and under high quality controls.
After spreading its wings to 9 countries such as Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan and the USA, Yamazaki is present in Indonesia with brand MYROTI.
Yamazaki Indonesia was established in 2012 which is located in Delta Mas, Cikarang, Bekasi and started operation in November 2014. Current employee is around 270 and distribution areas are including Jabodetabek and Bandung with more than 4,500 stores.
