In 1923, Minejiro Yamazaki, the founder of S&B Foods, succeeded in manufacturing curry powder for the first time in Japan. Since then, S&B Foods has been producing and distributing a dazzling variety of spices, condiments and cooking ingredients, including curry sauce mix, stew sauce mix, pepper, garlic, ginger, wasabi, and other powdered spices and herb related products.
Innovation is in S&B's DNA. Besides being the first company to successfully manufacture curry powder in Japan, S&B Foods was also among the first to introduce spices and herbs from foreign shores, adding a savory new dimension to Japan’s unique culinary lifestyle. S&B is also the inventor of tube wasabi, which allowed the company to break into the global market, and continue to develop original products that drive the food industry.
