Touring Saman Bakery

I recently had a chance to tour this North Vancouver based Persian breads and sweets production bakery. This family bakery has been supplying their breads to a growing number of markets throughout the Vancouver area since 2004.

Amin Tavangar, President, explained that they brought in a Special oven from Iran to bake these Taftoons and other breads.

With only a few simple but meticulously selected ingredients, we are confident that taftoon bread will become a healthy, household favourite.Enjoy this bread with your wrap sandwiches or for the ultimate thin-crust pizza base! You can also enjoy it cut and toasted for dipping into a wide variety of dips and spreads.
