On Wednesday 5 January, everybody at Muntons was excited to watch our few minutes of fame on BBC 2, and watch Inside the Factory - Malt Loaf, which provided the inside scoop on a national favourite, the malt loaf.
In the first episode of the new series, viewers will watch as Gregg Wallace visits Soreen’s factory in Manchester. They will also see Cherry Healey’s exclusive access around the maltster’s Stowmarket headquarters as she learns how its quality malt ingredients play a critical role in the malt loaf’s classic taste and famous texture.
Filmed while observing the social distancing guidelines of December 2020, George Irving, Maltings Manager at Muntons, shows Cherry around the facilities. George explains the manufacturing process and the importance of sourcing the very best tasting malt. Muntons then delivers the malted ingredients to the malt loaf factory in Manchester, where Gregg is waiting.
The episode focuses on the British treat’s production and history and features drone footage of the Stowmarket site, taken by Muntons’ homegrown Engineer, James Robinson.
Ahead of the broadcast, Managing Director for Muntons, Mark Tyldesley said: “We’re looking forward to the new series of Inside the Factory and in particular this week’s malt loaf episode. It was a tremendous honour and an exciting opportunity to be included, and to welcome Cherry and the TV crew to our site certainly created quite a buzz within our teams!”
Muntons, which turned 100 in 2021, produces high-quality malted ingredients for Soreen and some of the most famous and well-loved food and drinks brands around the globe.
