Summary: Prepare to unpack the secrets of the supermarkets as this revelatory series goes behind the scenes with Britain's biggest supermarket chains to find out how they find, make and move the foods we all buy - on an epic scale. Supermarkets provide 90% of the food we eat in our homes and their control over both our plates and our palates is monumental. And invisible. Until now ... Joining supermarket insiders, this revelatory documentary gets to the heart of how supermarkets bring us the food we love to eat across four of the biggest events in their calendars: Easter, the summer barbecue season, Halloween and the pinnacle of the year - Christmas. With spring in the air, Gregg finds out what it takes to bring us millions of eggs for Pancake Day, discovers the clever technology behind Easter chocolate and reveals what our eyes tell us about the way we shop.
Language Note: In English.
