Mid-Atlantic Food Trades Organization
MAFTO is a food trade organization based in Philadelphia, PA. The members of MAFTO work to promote goodwill throughout the food industry. MAFTO hosts social events throughout the year to promote fellowship among its members, manufacturers and retailers and raise money for its scholarship fund and for donations to local charities.
Originally, three Philadelphia based trade organizations, with long and successful histories, merged to create MAFTO: the Tri State Food Marketing Association, the Philadelphia Food Trades Organization and the Mid-Atlantic Frozen Foods Association. This merger became official on January 1, 2005 with the goal of raising money in order to donate to those in need and promoting the food industry through education and scholarship.
In 2010, the Association of Manufacturers' Representatives merged with MAFTO to form an even stronger food trade organization. Learn More
