Colman’s mustard factory in Norwich is to close after 160 years with much of the work moving to Germany.
A spokesman for Colman’s owner Unilever says that it makes more sense to call the product Colman’s German Mustard.
“We are moving all the packaging work to Germany and a lot of our customers are in Europe,” explained the spokesman.
“Since Brexit, German mustard has a stronger brand appeal than English mustard in our European markets.”
Brexit supporters were distraught.
“Just as we get back our blue passports, we lose our yellow mustard,” said 70-year-old John Barton from Croydon.
