Sebastien Bureau founder Mannanova

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.


Seeing what you are doing is very helpful. The course is really good, super helpful and very well presented. Very professional.

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!

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.
