The urban harvest
MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace takes his love of food back to the source – the factories that feed us – to find out how some of our favourite foods get made.
In each programme, over the course of 24 hours, Gregg watches incredible edibles created from scratch on the tightest of timescales. Stepping into a different factory each episode, he uncovers the amazing processes behind the production of bread, dairy and confectionery. It’s the sheer scale of manufacturing that makes each location truly awe inspiring; discover how – in just 24 hours – 100,000 loaves, 130 tonnes of cheese and four million chocolate bars roll off the production line and are transported to their destination.
Along the way, Gregg meets entertaining characters who let him into the secrets behind the production process and challenge him to do their job himself.
