Generations of farming families
The Matthews Cotswold Flour story began when the original FWP (Frederick) Matthews built a mill on the river Evenlode in 1912. You’ll find us working here to this day, overlooking the picturesque Cotswold village of Shipton-Under-Wychwood. It’s not a bad office view!
The Matthews family have spent over 100 years developing, improving and innovating to consistently produce the very best flour and baking products. Today, the company is led by father and son team Paul and Bertie Matthews – FWP Matthews’ great, great grandsons. This sustained passion and expertise passed down through generations, continues to inform every step of our process – from our local ethos to our traditional methods.
To keep this flour at its very best never let the flour become damp. Store in a cool, dry place, allow good air circulation.
