Mustard seed for condiment use has been grown in Eastern England and for Colman’s since 1814.

Some growers families have been involved since the 1880’s.


In the UK mustard cropping is concentrated on arable farms in Eastern England,
principally in Cambridgeshire, Southern Lincolnshire and Norfolk,

expanding into Kent, Hertfordshire and Warwickshire.





















Mustard growers came together and Co-operative English Mustard Growers Limited

was formed in 2009. With the support of Unilever, the group took control of seed development

and agronomy with the help of Elsoms Seeds Limited (seed specialists) and

Farmacy plc (agronomy specialists).

In 2014, Colman's English Mustard celebrated it's 200th anniversary of "cutting the mustard".









A collaboration of mustard and mint growers, Unilever and individuals with the industry expertise

saw the construction of a new mustard mill on a greenfield site at Honingham near Norwich in 2020.

The mill at Condimentum Limited is one of three mills worldwide capable of milling Double Superfine mustard flour. This ingredient processing facility opens up new markets for mustard seed.


Together all parties share their knowledge.
