Making the best bread has always been a passion for the Toufayan family. Harry’s father started the business in the Middle East in 1926, and worked until he was 94 years old. The family emigrated to the United States in 1963 and opened their first baking plant in the United States in 1968, in West New York, NJ.
Harry’s vision, steadfast work ethic and sound business practices helped the business flourish over the ensuing decades, with Toufayan Bakeries undergoing several expansions and moves. Corporate headquarters and the pita plant are in Ridgefield, N.J., with additional manufacturing plants in Orlando and Plant City, Florida. Today, the third Toufayan generation oversees the entire process from baking to retail shelf, keeping the proud Toufayan tradition strong.
The original breads were hand-crafted in the small shop in New Jersey. Today, state-of-the-art facilities have allowed the brand to expand with new products and gain new fans throughout the US. Expansion has always followed a responsible path, caring about the community as well as the ingredients, the food and the brand. The Toufayan brand is based on the principles of the highest quality and consistent production, which you can taste in their delicious pita, flatbread, wraps, lavash and bagels.
