Muntons' malt factory in Stowmarket will be the focus of an episode of Inside the Factory, with Gregg Wallace and Cherry Healey, on BBC Two tonight.

The documentary series will showcase the manufacturing process of one of the nation's favourite dishes, malt loaf.

The episode was recorded in December 2020 and shows George Irving, maltings director, taking Healey around the facilities.

It will then switch to the Soreen factory in Manchester, where Wallace will discover how malt loaf is made.

Mark Tyldesley, managing director at Muntons 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."
