Mustard maker Colman's Norwich factory closure in 2019 confirmed



Mustard maker Colman's has confirmed it will close its base in Norwich, where the condiment has been produced for 160 years.

 
Parent company Unilever, which employs 113 people at the factory, revealed in January plans to shut it down.


A transition period of moving production from Norwich to Burton-upon-Trent and Germany will begin in autumn and continue until the end of 2019.


Around 40 roles are expected to be transferred to Burton.


Those employees based at the Norwich factory are now at risk of redundancy.
But Unilever said it plans to open a new milling facility near Norwich for the production and packing of Colman's mustard powder.
