Please introduce yourself and your startup Bread2Bun to our readers!
Hello, my name is Fayas Jawfer, a Mechanical engineering undergraduate student from the University of Rhein Waal,Germany originally from Srilanka. Being passionate about helping others to explore more cultures, foods , and contribute to their healthy food consumption, In September 2019 i decided to create bread2bun, a unique food recipe platform uniting everyone to access different cuisines across the world.
Here are some of the benefits available:
- Exploring delicious recipes.
- Adding recipes you’ve tried or would like to try into a personal weekly calendar (the ingredients will be automatically added to your shopping list).
- You can either shop for the ingredients by yourself or have them delivered to your doorstep.
Be Organized and track your weekly food budget, enjoy different foods everyday, cook with your loved ones, and share your weekly food schedule with anyone u like.
How did you get the idea of Bread2Bun?
Studying in an International university allowed me to meet many students from different ethnic backgrounds , expand my network and create circumstances where I can experience distinct cultures, and delicious meals across the globe.That was the start of everything.
Why did you decide to start with Bread2Bun?
The demand for foods, snacks and drinks is not going to end any time soon, which is why bread2bun has planned to explore different available foods in most of the countries around the world
What is the vision behind Bread2Bun?
Today, people need simplicity and healthy solutions, which aren’t restricted by any barriers. This is exactly what bread2bun will be offering. regardless of where you are from, you will be able to explore and cook foods across the world with just two clicks on a mobile.
How difficult was the start and which challenges you had to overcome?
The start was extremely difficult. Not only was I trying to learn the internal market of different sectors, I was simultaneously learning how to build a website, insert basic coding, tweak and test marketing material to gain some minimal traction,. On top of that, trying to come up with ways to fund the platform.
After running in circles for the first months, the right opportunity came up, which continues to build and so the right people with the experience to support. I’ve ultimately learned that Consistency is what truly separates success from failure.
Who is your target audience?

What is the USP of your startup?

Can you describe your typical workday ?
I wake up around 6 am and spend the first 30 minutes of my day praying,reading, listening to podcasts and drinking coffee; anything from sales-based books to consumer and start-up psychology.
I do my daily workout for 30-45 minutes before hitting on a cold shower. And then the breakfast followed by a brain smoothie
I spend 8 am onwards, attending my university lectures ( depending on my day) or start working on the bread2bun platform, going through marketing material,digital marketing techniques, finding network possibilities , answering email, meeting up with potential partners, mentors, and advisors. Researching and studying the industry to be amongst the first to market with new technology and innovation.
Where do you see yourself and your startup Bread2Bun in five years?
