“Great Food starts with Great Bread, made by people as passitionate about the bread they make as you are about the food you make and share with those who matter most to you.”
At the Shamsane Bakery, we take pride in the bread we bake. That’s why we strive to create bread that not only tastes great, but bread that is also good for you. We fine tune our recipes to use as little sodium as possible. In fact, all of our products are below 2016 sodium target 5-year plan set by Health Canada. And we didn’t have to change a thing, because we’ve always been committed to baking the best bread possible.
This is also why our breads use little to no oil, and why we offer our bread in both white flour and whole wheat flour varieties. And why we were one of the first bakeries in Canada to offer bread with no artificial preservatives. We do all this because we take pride in what we do and we want you to feel good about enjoying our products.
HOW WE STARTED
The Shamsane Pita Bakery started in 1998 in Calgary, Alberta. Since then, we have been producing Western Canada’s finest authentic Pita bread. Through this time we have worked to constantly improve our products by providing better taste, texture, freshness, and a healthier and more natural Pita bread. This is why we deliver our Pita bread fresh from the bakery, direct to your nearby grocer on a daily basis to most locations in Calgary and the surrounding region, and fresh-frozen to stores ranging from British Columbia to Manitoba.
In 2012 we expanded our operations with the addition of a new flatbread production facility. This resulted in a change of name from our traditional “The Shamsane Pita Bakery,” to the new “Shamsane Bakery,” to better reflect our position as a bakery with a more diverse product line.
As of 2013, we have added 4 new products alongside our famous Shamsane Pita bread. This includes our Persian Barbari Bread, Long Afghan Tandoori Bread, Round Afghan Tandoori Bread, and our own unique and multipurpose Thick Flat Bread.
Continuing with our commitment to being the premiere Pita and Artisan specialty bread producer in western Canada, we have several new exciting products planned for launch during 2014.
