We are proud to display the Red Tractor logo on a number of our flours to show their British provenance.
Red Tractor ensures you can trust the food we all eat. It is the largest food standards scheme in the UK. Red Tractor food and drink has been responsibly produced to some of the most comprehensive and respected standards in the world. The way that Red Tractor food is farmed and prepared is regularly checked by independent experts to make sure it is of a good standard.
We source the best quality wheat, much of it from local Essex farmers, including from the Marriage family’s own farms only a few miles from Chelmer Mills. Essex is a prime wheat growing area, due to its climate and soil, and this local commitment also helps to keep food miles to a minimum. Many of the farmers that supply Marriage’s have been farming families for generations.
Marriage’s Red Tractor certified flours for home bakers include Finest Plain flour, an all-purpose flour for pastry, biscuits and sauces and Finest Self Raising flour, perfect for light sponges, scones and muffins. Our unique Golden Wholegrain Plain flour has a sweeter, milder flavour and lighter colour than traditional wholemeal flour, ideal for making wholesome biscuits and cakes with more fibre.
