When Manoucher Etminan, creator of Manoucher Bread, came to Toronto,
Canada in 1980, he had one vision: to create a future for himself and his
With no prior knowledge in bread making or the food industry in 1983, he
made a promise to himself to produce the most authentic handmade breads
using only the finest, purest ingredients. Manoucher would be the first to
tell you that he wasn’t a baker. Instead he would say, ‘I am a designer of
breads’. Today, his vision has evolved into a world class artisan bakery.
We launched Manoucher Bread 35 years ago with a simple commitment to make each loaf by hand, not machines, using only natural ingredients. Just as bread should be enjoyed.And by inspiring an artisanal bread revolution, we elevated bread around the world, from the finest stores to leading airlines.We’re proud of each and every loaf that brings a smile to a bread lover’s face around the world, and we will continue to rise before the sun to make people happy.
Going door to door himself, some of the best specialty food shops in Toronto like David Wood’s, Fenton’s and Pusateri’s (who we still supply) begin taking in fresh handmade breads made, invoiced, and delivered all by Manoucher himself!
