Local company BrewDog are currently fronting a new television series appearing on Channel 4. Titled ‘Food Unwrapped’ Martin Dickie and James Watt, co-founders of the Fraserburgh-based brewery, kick-started the series on Monday night.
‘Food Unwrapped’ will feature supermarkets and producers being put under the spotlight concerning the additives in our food.
Writing about the show on BrewDog’s online blog, James Watt said: “The premise of the show is to go behind the scenes of factories and food producers worldwide and get the full picture of what really goes into making some of the food products that we are all familiar with. As you guys know, food and drink is our passion, and our bars and business are a testament to those values.
“Food Unwrapped contacts supermarkets and producers with simple questions about the food we buy – what’s the wax on my lemons?; what are the bacteria in my probiotics? or what is formed ham? If they can’t explain it, the gang of hungry detectives stop at nothing to find out, travelling to the food producers who supply the supermarkets to investigate – from Liverpool to Swaziland, and Thailand to Spain.
“Taking the cameras behind the doors of factories worldwide, the inquisitive food lovers meet food technicians, scientists, factory owners, growers and producers. On the journey to get their answers, they report back on some truly amazing places, and most importantly, reveal weird and wonderful facts we never knew about our food.”
‘Food Unwrapped’ is currently appearing on Channel 4, Monday’s at 8:30pm.
Following on from the eight part series, the pair hopw to work on a beer television show ‘BrewDogs’, which they hope will be on screens in the new year.
