The series sees Gregg Wallace going behind the scenes with Britain's biggest food retailers to discover how they source and transport the food we find on the shelves.

Against the iconic backdrop of the Eastgate Clock, Gregg questioned Gregg people about the controversial use of palm oil in a wide range of products they would expect to put in their shopping trollies.

Palm oil production is reported to have been responsible for about eight per cent of global deforestation between 1990 and 2008.

Gregg is perhaps best known as the co-presenter and judge of BBC cooking show Masterchef.

He has also appeared as a contestant on singing contest Just the Two of Us and dancing show Strictly Come Dancing, as well as appearing on Who Do You Think You Are and Room 101.
