Hey, I’m Seb Bureau!
As president of Mannanova, I’ve helped more than 250 kombucha brewers around the world scale their production while maintaining a high standard of quality.
From 2009 to 2014, I was VP of R&D at Rise Kombucha and contributed to making it Canada’s biggest producer. In five years, we outgrew two factories, scaled from 200 litres a week to more than a million litres a year, and became internationally renowned as the country’s largest kombucha business.
Hey, I’m Tom Durant!
I’m Mannanova's director of production, and I’ll teach you the practical stuff: less theory, more hands-on action.
We’ll empower you to become the master of your own brew. Our goal is to create a thriving international kombucha community.
What People Say
Sébastien is a dedicated innovator whose vision and dedication has been an important part in helping the company attain the production quality needed to be at the forefront of our market!
Sébastien was incredibly helpful to me in the initial stages of planning a scaled-up production plant. Having a very limited budget and not knowing where to start, he was instrumental in designing a functional brewery.
We had an amazing time learning from Sébastien, developing delicious and stable flavors. As we are a local crafted kombucha company, all the high-quality service and information that Mannanova provided was essential to make our idea come true.

I really appreciated the fact that Sébastien is someone reliable, available and who has a deep knowledge of kombucha and fermented products. Mannanova has been helping our company since the beginning to achieve high-quality products.
The amount of knowledge you’ve shared is huge. I’m grateful for this course - I really enjoyed it. Money well spent. Thank you!
I now have a better understanding of how to improve and scale up in a practical and economical way. The Mannanova crew seem to intuitively know what I was going through and could fill in my knowledge and skills gaps. For under $2k, my team and I have a living resource to help with the business. I can assure you I have paid a lot more for a lot less!
The association of practical and theoretical enables us to visualize the different steps and manipulations. An undeniable amount of work went into this and the result is very professional. Very happy to take the course. Thank you!
