7 Facts Croissant

7 Facts about Croissants


Austria or French?

The kipferl, the origin of croissant, can be dated back to at least the 13th century in Austria. August Zang simplified the Kipferl in 1839 and founded his own bakery in Paris where it was popular and inspired French imitators


The French version of the kipferl was named for its crescent (croissant) shape and has become a universally identifiable shape across the world


A croissant is classified as a “viennoiserie” in france.

In France, the croissant is part of the category of pastries that the French call “Viennoiserie”, a nod to their origins in Vienna, The term viennoiserie comes from a 20th-century term for supposedly Vienna-style pastries.


The croissant, as we know it today, wasn't invented until the early 1900s.

Although the kipferl had firmly taken up residency in France in the 19th century, it was still a far cry from the flakey pastry we know today. The croissant, as we know it, was born in the early 20th century when French pastry chefs replaced the brioche type dough with yeast-leavened puffed pastry (Pâte levée feuilletée) dough and copious amounts of butter.


January 30th is National Croissant Day.


The Croissant became the French national product in 1920.

At Days Bakery, we give thought and time to reducing waste. Every day, we go through a lot of cups, bags, and boxes. We have been working hard alongside our rebrand to make the packaging not only strong and durable, but also recyclable or biodegradable.

Recycling our cups

Recently, at Days Bakery we have taken a significant step to contribute towards environmental sustainability by swapping our traditional, non-biodegradable coffee cups with eco-friendly, biodegradable ones. This decision was taken as a part of our ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and do our part in minimizing waste. We believe that small actions like these can lead to substantial impact in the long run, and we take great pride in playing our part in creating a better future for our planet.

Recycling our bags

We have recently changed our bakery packaging to recyclable paper bags and boxes. This aligns with our values and reduces waste. We’re dedicated to sustainability and this packaging is just one of the ways we’re taking action.

Waste Bread

Zero Waste Bread

At Days Bakery we give thought and time towards reducing waste. Every loaf has its time to shine and sometimes these loaves are not sold and need to be thrown away.
To make this process more eco-friendly and sustainable we have signed up to Biogen Bygrave. This means any leftover bread can be made into biogas which is captured and fed into super-efficient gas engines to generate renewable electricity for the grid. What remains is a valuable biofertiliser which we put back into the land to grow more crops.
So our bread not only powers you throughout the day but also powers your home.
