Mustard Foods celebrates a milestone birthday for the MF Range, but our core principles of quality, consistency and integrity goes back to 1974! 

1974 – 2000s

The Mustard Group was founded in 1974. Led by legendary party planner Glynn Woodin, Mustard Catering revolutionised London’s high-end catering sector. He catered for celebrities, royalty, and eminent venues across London including The Royal Academy, The Wallace Collection and the V&A. Mustard catered for Lord Shackleton and the Royal Family for the very first time at the Royal Geographic Society in 1981.

In the mid-2000s the casual dining sector began to change. Growing restaurant groups needed strategic food partners with development, advisory and production facilities to support their growth. Mustard Foods started supplying a select group of London restaurants with a focus on developing and producing bespoke recipes. Led by Chef Director James Robins, Mustard has developed bespoke sauces, salsas, pie fillings and dressings for some of the UK’s favourite eateries.

2020 – 2023

During the pandemic, Mustard Foods launched the ‘At Home’ brand, supplying restaurant-quality meals directly to the public, to support the Mustard team. At the same time, Mustard partnered with non-profit organisation Critical NHS to provide piping hot meals to NHS staff on a daily basis during the COVID-19 crisis. Over an 18-month period, Mustard Foods supplied over 482 000 meals.

Mustard utilised the work they were doing for the NHS and charity organisations to test and trial ready-to-serve meals which inspired the Mustard Foods Wholesale Range. With a catalogue of over 60 products, the range includes ambient and frozen soups, sauces, stews and curries to support the challenging times faced by the foodservice sector.

With Managing Director James Robins and Commercial Director James Durrant at the helm, Mustard continues to supply the foodservice industry, and At Home retail clients, with delicious and innovative restaurant-quality frozen meals
