Welcome to Thew Arnott - a thriving, family-run business where history and tradition blend seamlessly with excellence and innovation

Thew Arnott emerged from the London fogs of the mid-19th century at a time when ‘drysalting’ was a mystery to many. Over the years, the company evolved and grew as it traded under a variety of guises from ‘shellac bleachers’ to ‘gum merchants’ to ‘colour manufacturers’.

Fast forward to today and you’ll discover a speciality ingredients business totally in tune with the modern world yet retaining its essential ethos from those early days.

From offices in London and state-of-the-art production facilities in Deeside, Thew Arnott offers customers a level of expertise and experience that only a business immersed in the industry for a century and a half can provide - but with a focus on product innovation and service excellence firmly based in today’s and tomorrow’s world.
