Yamazaki Baking Co., Ltd. (山崎製パン株式会社 Yamazaki Seipan Kabushiki Gaisha?) is a Japanese company that makes bread, snack foods and other foods headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo.[1] It was established in Japan on 9 March 1948 in Ichikawa, Chiba by Tojuro Iijima[2] as Yamazaki Baking (山崎製パン所 Yamazaki Seipan-sho?) (TYO: 2212) and has continued making baked goods for more than sixty years since its founding.

Yamazaki products can be found in various Asian countries, including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, and China. They also operate within the United States and France under the Vie de France brand after purchasing the company in 1991.[3]

Yamazaki is the only Japanese baked goods company still using potassium bromate in their bread; all Japanese baking companies voluntarily stopped using it in 1980 due to suspicions of carcinogenicity, but Yamazaki resumed its use in 2005.[4]
