Snapshot: making peanut butter in Berlin
Founded by Claire Wildenhues and Max Bartscherer, DAYBREAK is a German peanut butter company that launched in 2020.
‘Toilet paper and peanut butter were sold out everywhere, so it became clear this was a shared appetite,’ say the pair.
While the shelling, roasting, milling and jarring all take place in Berlin, DAYBREAK sources its peanuts from Egypt.
‘[They're] sweet and minerally and taste intense in a way that's hard to find with US or Chinese peanuts. They're full of oil, which is important when you're making butter.’
