For as long as people have been baking bread, bakers have made raisin bread. Raisin breads take many forms around the globe. In the early 1900s, Sun Maid used raisin bread to introduce California raisins, providing both ingredients and recipes to bakers across the country, who in turn baked loaves of raisin bread by the millions. Today, Sun Maid Raisin Bread is widely distributed throughout the United States and Canada.
