Pretz is one of the family brands under Glico corporation. Started in 1919, Mr. Ri-ichi Ezaki, Glico's founder, discovered that oyster broth contains generous amounts of glycogen. Hence, he took the necessary steps to commercially offer food products incorporating glycogen and therefore, spread its healthful benefits to the world. In due time, the nutritious confection “Glico Caramel” was introduced into the marketplace and Glico came up with the objective of "Enhance health through food!".

Glico was later established on 11 February 1922 on the day that “Glico Caramel”, in its charming red box, was offered to the market for the first time. Demand had grown dramatically throughout that period and the factories were expanded on many parts of the world. Unfortunately, most facilities were completely destroyed by the end of the World War II in 1945. Despite all that tragedy, Mr. Ri-ichi Ezaki stated with his employees, “Though war destroyed all else, the remaining asset is Glico itself” then started to revive production of “Bisco” then “Glico Caramel” then continue to expand many long-selling snacks such as Almond Chocolate, Pretz, Giant Cone, and Pocky afterwards.

About Pretz, its first soda flavor was introduced in the market in 1962 base on a traditional German snack. After commencing a number of sales after launched, a butter-flavored Pretz was introduced in the following year and immediately gained popularity among children until these days.
