Gregg Wallace visits Notts-based Addo Food Group for BBC documentary

Market-leading producer of chilled savoury products Addo Food Group will be appearing on BBC Two’s Inside The Factory this week (Thursday 12 December).

The latest episode of Gregg Wallace’s popular factory tour show will follow the production of a range of party food made at the company’s Riverside site in Nottingham for retailer Marks & Spencer.

The TV show - which is now in its fifth series – showcases the production of a different product each week. The programme documents the full manufacturing process, starting with the raw ingredients and displaying the product development before arriving at the retailer.

Deborah Bolton CEO of Addo Food Group said:

“Myself and the whole Addo Food Group team are very excited to be appearing on BBC Two’s Inside The Factory. We were absolutely delighted to have been approached by such a popular prime-time show and to host Gregg and the crew at our Riverside premises.”

Addo Food Group produces a wide range of products for a selection of major UK retailers and the Wall’s Pastry and Pork Farms brands. Their product portfolio includes sausage rolls, pork pies, hot pies, pasties, slices and the star of this week’s episode, quiches.

Addo Food Group employs 2,500 people nationwide with 450 of them based its Riverside bakery, the Group’s second Nottinghamshire location. Riverside bakery also features its own specialist manufacturing facility and development team, focused on driving product innovation and quality.

Deborah added:

“We have six bakery sites across the country but Riverside bakery in Nottingham is one of our busiest - with 42m quiches being baked on-site each year. As the UK’s largest chilled quiche manufacturer, the festive period is the most demanding time of year for us – with our hard-working team producing 4.5m quiches every December. The businesses appearance on Inside The Factory has created a buzz within the team and I have no doubt will be watched by all this Thursday.”

This week’s episode also features two other Midlands-based businesses - Derbyshire-based haulage company NFT Distribution (EV Cargo branded – parent company) and West Midlands-based egg supplier, Bumblehole Foods both appear as part of Addo Food Group’s supply chain.

The latest episode of Inside The Factory will air on BBC Two at 9 pm Thursday 12 December.
