W & H Marriage & Sons Ltd has been milling flour in Essex since 1824.
Today, the company is owned and run by the fifth and sixth generations of the Marriage family.
We are committed to selecting the best quality wheats, sourcing much from farmers based within 25–30 miles of Chelmer Mills. Many are farming families who have supplied Marriage’s for generations. We also use wheat from farms just a few miles away, owned by the Marriage family.
Marriage’s flour is produced using a combination of traditional techniques we have used for generations and the best modern milling technology. All our stoneground wholemeal flours are traditionally milled on horizontal French Burr stones. These stones have been used for milling flour for over a hundred years and play a vital part in the taste and texture of the flour.
As well as 16kg sacks for bakeries, Marriage’s produce an award winning range of sixteen flours for home bakers.
