On May 7th 1814, the Norfolk Chronicle announced that Jeremiah Colman had taken the stock and trade of a mustard mill in Stoke Holy Cross. 2014 marks the 200th anniversary of the brand that Jeremiah founded, known today simply as Colman's.

To mark this momentous occasion, Norwich HEART and Colman's Mustard Shop & Museum have collaborated with the East Anglian Film Archive, History of Advertising Trust, the Unilever Archives and the Forum. United, we have created All Over the World: 200 Years of Colman's Mustard, an exhibition that explores and documents the global impact of a unique Norwich brand, and the people that forged it. The display plots the key points that metamorphosed this small, family-run business. Spectators can learn about wartime Colman's, the role of mustard in medicine and food history, the company's revolutionary attitudes towards advertising and its worldwide impact.
