Arla Foods, its farmer owners and employees, are featuring in a new series airing on BBC Two next week, which takes an unprecedented look behind the scenes at how some of the UK’s favourite foods are produced.
The three-part series, ‘Inside The Factory: How Our Favourite Foods Are Made’, is hosted by Greg Wallace and Cherry Healey and reveals how dairy, bread and confectionary products are made. The episode on dairy production will be shown at 8pm on Thursday 7 May (Election Night) and provides a unique insight into the innovative ways that the number one dairy company has found to make high quality, good-tasting dairy products as efficiently and naturally as possible.
The programme looks at milk, butter and cheese, from the passion of Arla’s owners on-farm to the dedication of its employees, and from stringent quality controls to the benefits of its investments in its world- class, high-tech production facilities.
Ash Amirahmadi, head of milk and member services, Arla Foods UK, said: “We’re excited to showcase our passion for dairy. It has provided us with an opportunity to bring to life our dedication and our attention to detail for consumers, from farm to fridge. The programme shows how being a farmer-owned company means we are constantly innovating to deliver the best returns for our farmers, but also ensuring that our products retain their natural goodness and taste great.”
Jane Dyson, Holly Green Farm and Arla farmer owner, said: “We have always been passionate about dairy farming and producing the best quality milk. We welcomed the opportunity to have Greg and Cherry visit the farm and be able to take them through how we care for and milk our cows.”
Rob Whiteley, cheese process manager, Arla Foods, said: “Dairy is a staple of the British diet and it’s good to see an eye-opening TV documentary showcasing the skill and expertise that goes into making high quality dairy products for consumers on behalf of dairy farmers.”
