Manba

The Story

dD Manba was inspired by a trip to Haïti in 2014 where co-founder, Jason Delis, and Haïtian born Stanley Dumornay, volunteered to do humanitarian. While there, Stanley hinted to Jason that he try a Haïtian tradition, Manba, otherwise known as peanut butter. The one difference with Haïtian peanut butter, however, is that it’s typically spicy!

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.

Behind Manba

Manba

In 2014, Stanley D. and Jason D. (dD) volunteered to do humanitarian work in Haiti. Once there, they were taken aback by the stark economic and social conditions – seemingly, nothing had improved since the devastating earthquake of 2010, but that didn’t stop the Haitians from persevering.

Their pride and hospitality were remarkable, as was their famous Creole cuisine. The food was rich, natural, flavourful, and delicious. It inspired dD, particularly the “manba”, the Creole word for peanut butter. They purchased a jar from a local producer and found the spiciness to compliment the peanut taste perfectly. Back home, dD searched for mamba to satisfy their cravings but found nothing equalling the quality and flavour of the Haitian specialty. So, they decided to make their own!

Eighteen months later, dD now bring you their very own mamba made from a blend of the highest quality peanuts from the USA and Haiti and produced in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. With a pinch of organic sugar and salt, dD Manba is the classic Haitian-style peanut butter. Thank you for your support and enjoy our Mamba!
