About Diamond Bakery

What started off as a dream between friends has grown to become Diamond Bakery, a household name in Hawaii. The company, named after the famous Diamond Head landmark on Oahu, was founded in 1921 by three Japanese immigrants, Hidegoro Murai, Kikutaro Hiruya, and Natsu Muramoto. They all enjoyed baking and had the vision to create Hawaii’s first bakery focused on the perfect Hawaiian-made cracker.

Although the friends encountered several obstacles in the early years of the business, it was the company’s good fortune to hire experienced baker Sam Dunphy to oversee production. By 1937, Diamond Bakery had mastered the ability to bake crackers and cookies to the highest levels of taste and texture. Many of those same products are still enjoyed today by families throughout Hawaii, creating a sense of nostalgia for many people on the Islands.

These timeless, iconic products include Graham, Soda, Saloon Pilot, and Royal Creem crackers, along with Hawaiian Animal crackers and cookies.
