Unilever to shut historic Colman’s Mustard factory in Norwich
The Norwich factory that has been the home of Colman's Mustard for 160 years is to close, Unilever, the food brand's multinational owner, said on Thursday. The Anglo-Dutch consumer goods company, which acquired the condiment brand in 1995, announced that "Unfortunately" the factory would be shut by the end of 2019, with a phased transfer of production to other facilities starting later this year. Unilever pledged to "Protect the historic links" with Norwich, with a new mustard milling facility in the area. A German factory, which already makes the dried mustard product, would absorb additional volumes. It conceded the future of the factory was already in doubt after Britvic, the drinks company with whom Unilever shared the site, said in October it would shut next year.
