Who are Mallow & Marsh? We’re a premium marshmallow confectionery company that are redefining the meaning of premium confectionery and setting a new standard for innovation.

We can now be found in over 3,000 stores nationwide including Sainsbury’s, Boots and Starbucks, and are on track to triple our growth this year.
