MANCHESTER, ENGLAND — Henry Simon completed a new mustard mill for Colman’s Mustard in Norfolk, UK.
Colman’s Mustard has been produced in Norfolk for more than 200 years and is one of the most recognized and respected food brands in the world.
The new mustard mill, built on a greenfield site at Honingham, is a collaborative partnership between Condimentum, Unilever, and English Mustard Growers. EMG is a UK farmer’s collective that supplies the mill with all its home-grown mustard seed requirements from local growing areas.
The original Henry Simon built Colman’s Mustard mill in Norwich was closed when the company decided to invest in the new site.
“The new mill produces mustard flour and other specialty products that are packed on site or processed in other facilities to produce mustard paste and a tin packing facility for their very popular dry mustard flour, frequently seen on UK supermarket shelves and for export around the world,” said David Martin, managing director of Condimentum. “The decision to use Henry Simon, to provide milling expertise and equipment, continues a tradition of partnership with the Colman`s brand dating back many years.”
Henry Simon provided a turnkey package for the design and installation of the mustard mill from seed cleaning and preparation, milling and blending, through to small and large bag packing.
Also included was the provision of all seed and flour storage bins, mechanical installation, electrical installation and control system with Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) capability.
Henry Simon milling equipment includes the HSREZS Color Sorter, the HSRM — one of the most modern roller mills in the world, the HSQP Plansifter and the HSPU Purifier, all pictured opposite. The entire Henry Simon milling project was designed and project managed by Satake Europe Manchester, UK.
