A sweet celebration

Toffee firm marks 125 years

HISTORIC toffee brand Walker’s Nonsuch is celebrating its 125th birthday this year. The Stoke on Trent-based firm has been producing its traditional confectionery, in keeping with its original recipe, since its founding in the 19th century.

Walker’s Nonsuch was founded in a small sweet shop by Edward Joseph Walker and his sister Florence in 1894. The firm was launched as a limited company by second generation toffee maker Edward Victor in 1922.

Since then, Walkers Nonsuch has expanded down the decades, and the toffee brand is now under the care of managing director Adrian Hill – who has worked with the company for over 34 years – along with fifth generation descendents of Edward Joseph Walker.

Today, the Walker’s Nonsuch portfolio includes a range of toffee bags available in 135g, 150g and 2.5kg variants; a range of toffee bars available in either 50g or 100g; and a 1.25kg toffee jar, available in four flavours.

Walker’s Nonsuch currently exports to over 50 countries around the globe.
