Born & Bread: Marriage’s Millers

first_imgMarriage’s Millers was born almost 200 years ago on a family farm and is now one of the UK’s leading suppliers of a wide range of baking flours.,Marriage’s Millers was created in 1824 by twin brothers William and Henry Marriage, who were just 17 years old when they inherited their father’s mill.The family had several mills, the main one being Broomfield Mill, in which a steam engine was installed to drive the millstones in 1836.“We’ve always had high standards for wheat. We’re in a good wheat-growing area, and we have lots of farmers who we’ve dealt with directly for generations,” says company director Hannah Marriage, part of the sixth generation of the family to work in business.William Marriage’s sons Sampson and Phillip, and Henry Marriage’s son Henry, joined the business in 1865 and, in 1899, it moved its HQ to Chelmer Mills in Chelmsford, where it remains today.The site had its own railway siding that allowed coal and grain to be delivered, and flour to be sent to London. The site has seen a number of updates, with electric power installed in 1952 to replace a steam engine, a new feed mill in 1970, and Chelmer Mill remodelled in 1998. It has a bakery on-site so it can work with customers if they want to develop new products or troubleshoot.Henry Marriage’s sons Henry and Llewellyn, and Sampson’s son Sampson Percival were the third generation to join the business, while the fourth consisted of brothers Sampson David and Steven, as well as their cousin Henry.Sampson David championed organic flour, which Marriage’s started supplying in 1986, followed by a range of artisan flours in 2012, and the expansion of its home baking flour capacity in 2013.The fifth generation of the business comprised George Marriage, who has been president of the National Association of British & Irish Millers (Nabim) for the past two years, his brother Peter and their cousin Simon.George’s daughter Hannah became the first woman in the family to join the business when she took on the role of marketing executive, becoming a company director in 2013. The sixth generation is made up of Hannah and her cousins James and Sam.Recent developments have included a Golden Wholegrain range, made from a wheat variety naturally high in fibre, and an artisan range with spelt, rye and barley flours.“We want to build on our history, retain our good reputation, quality products and personal customer service,” concludes Hannah. “We want to continue responding as the market changes in the future.”Timeline1824: Business founded by William and Henry Marriage at Broomfield Mill1891: Modern roller plant is installed at Moulsham Mill by William and Henry’s sons1899: The mill moves to newly built site Chelmer Mills1952: Electric power is installed1970: New feed mill built1986: Organic flour introduced1998: Chelmer Mill remodelled2012: An artisan flour range is launched2013: Home baking flour capacity is expandedlast_img read more

Gabon president appoints new opposition figure to Cabinet

first_imgGabon’s President on Sunday named a new opposition figure to a senior ministerial post, just one day after another senior opposition leader declined the post, undermining the president’s effort to forge a united government ahead of next year’s elections.President Ali Bongo named Mathieu Mboumba Nziengui, executive secretary of the opposition Union of the Gabonese People, or UPG, as the minister of state for agriculture.Dieudonné Moukagni Iwangou, the leader of another wing of the UPG wing, rejected the same offer, calling for political change in the oil-rich central African country.The reshuffle, announced in a presidential decree on Friday, expanded the cabinet to 41 members from 34 initially, and was seen as an attempt by the president to silence his critics who claim that his family dominates the Gabonese political scene since independence in 1960.The UPG has been divided into 3 wings since the death of its founder, Pierre Mamboundou in 2011.Iwangou has been one of the most outspoken voices in the opposition, and the president of the Opposition Front for Change – a coalition of groups dedicated to ending the ruling Gabonese Democratic Party’s 47 years in power.The president also named technocrat Jean Sylvain Bekale Nze as minister for town planning and housing after Jean-Robert Endamane, from the Bongo-allied RPG party, refused the post, saying he had never been consulted about the appointment.last_img read more
