Marriage’s source English wheat from local Essex farmers where possible, much of the wheat we use is from farmers based within a 25-30 mile radius of our historic Essex site, Chelmer Mills. Many of these local farmers come from families who have supplied Marriage's for generations. We also use wheat from farms just a few miles away that are owned by the Marriage family. Essex is the best wheat-growing area in the country and sourcing locally helps us to reduce food miles.
A number of Marriage’s flours have the Red Tractor symbol to demonstrate their British provenance. Red Tractor is largest food standards scheme in the UK and this week they're be celebrating great British food and drink and the farms they come from.
