Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Kathy Filosi Nelson (Owner and Chief Toffee Maker), and her husband, Larry, started MFG Toffee & Bark Co. in 2016 with Kathy’s great grandmother’s recipe for English walnut toffee. 

Today, in addition to MFG’s signature English walnut toffee, we offer a line of globally inspired toffees and dark chocolate barksall made in small batches and with only the fines ingredients. A preferred vendor for several area caterers and event plannersMFG Toffee products can be found online at www.mfgtoffee.com and in more than fifteen grocers, specialty markets and gift shops across the region, including the America! shops at BWI Airport.   

 In 2019, MFG Toffee & Bark Co. was featured in the Specialty Food Association magazine as a “Buyer’s Pick” and in the Baltimore Business Journal Magazine,  Try it…you’ll hide it! is our motto and for good reason.
