Colmans Mustard Factory in 1800s

NORFOLK THROUGH AND THROUGH 

Colman’s Mustard has called Norfolk home since 1814.

Jeremiah James Colman established the production factory in Norwich which is still going strong today. He was nothing if not a perfectionist, and our mustard is just as bold as ever – that’s why it’s the nation’s favourite*

HOW WE GET THAT FAMOUS COLMAN’S KICK 

We perfected our English mustard long ago, so the process hasn’t changed much over the years. We mill our mustard seeds not once, but twice to get double superfine mustard powder. This is the key ingredient for that famous Colman’s kick.

HELLO THERE, NEIGHBOUR 

We want to support our local farmers, so all our white mustard, mint and apples are sourced in the UK. We’re working to increase the amount of locally sourced brown mustard we use, too, and all our seeds are milled on site in Norfolk.

KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY

We’re proud of our Norfolk roots and our place in the community. We still source our mustard from many of the same farms we’ve always worked with, and in some cases, the same families. Some of our current farmers are 4th generation Colman’s mustard seed growers. Sunday lunch round ours is pretty serious business.
