One of the original founders of Archant Limited was Jeremiah Colman (1830 – 1898), the same person behind the famed Colman’s Mustard. The people of Archant liked the quirky name, especially since the unique taste of mustard helps to make food just a little bit more interesting. It possibly was a metaphor of sorts about how Mustard TV can make the life of its viewers richer and more fulfilling.
