Buying a jar from Stan’s friend, Jason tasted Manba in his kitchen in Montreal after the trip and instantly fell in love with rich texture and spicy after-kick. Noticing a lack of Haïtian-style peanut in Montreal, Stanley and Jason teamed-up to form Dumornay Delis (dD) and started producing their very own Manba in October 2015.
dD’s decision to import peanuts from Haïti is twofold. Firstly, authentic Haïtian-style peanut butter should include Haïtian peanuts, and secondly, sourcing peanuts from Haïti directly supports the Haïtian farmers.
To date, Manba is the only peanut butter in Canada that includes peanuts imported from Haïti. Every jar contains 100 grams of peanuts imported from the Acceso Peanut Corporation in Port-au-Prince, Haïti.
