The Dutch mustard factory De Marne has a rich history. It all began more than a century ago in a small place called Kloosterburen where three gentlemen decided to boost the local economy through starting up a mustard factory. Not only did it provide work opportunities for people living in the commune, it also gave local farmers a chance to sell their mustard seeds. The small mustard factory soon succeeded this aspiration and the mustard quickly became known in the area because of its quality and affordable price. This popularity resulted in an increasing demand, wherefore De Marne decided to move to the capital city of the province, Groningen, which caused logistics to improve significantly because of the many canals and highways. In a short period of time, De Marne mustard was available throughout the Netherlands and international distribution had never been closer.
Nowadays the products of De Marne Factories are globally available. In Africa, the mustard is an affordable product to enrich flavors of local dishes and in Asia it is used as a tasty supplement to their spicy cuisine. De Marne remains to be located in the idyllic factory in Groningen, where the mustard is grinded with great care and craftsmanship, packed and distributed to the numerous channels in the Netherlands and across the border. Because of the growing international demand and the ambition to expand the business even more within the next couple of years, De Marne Factories will build a new logistics hall. As a result, there will be more room in the current hall to develop the craft of making mustard with modern production techniques. De Marne can bow upon its rich history and enjoy the sight of a bright future ahead.
