JON HEIN GUIDES VIEWERS THROUGH THE MAKING OF DELECTABLE SWEETS, TREATS, AND EATS IN DESTINATION AMERICA'S "FOOD FACTORY"

-- New Series Coming to Destination America on Monday, January 14 at 10 and 10:30 PM (E/P) --

(Silver Spring, MD) - Dubble Bubble gum, Planters peanuts, Dannon yogurt, Campbell's soup, and SunChips. We crave them. Buy them. Open them, and eat them. But behind every one of these deceptively simple food products is a fascinating and intricate process involving grand machinery, a symphony of assembly lines, and a suite of weird and wonderful steps that carries each treat from the factory floor right into your kitchen. Destination America's new series FOOD FACTORY takes viewers behind the scenes to see how some of America's most beloved products are made. From iconic international brands to mom-and-pop products, each involves a process ripe with zigs, zags, swoops, and alleyoops as they travel down the production line. Along the way, marvel at the machinery - some mega, some miniscule - sophisticated manufacturing techniques, and revealing food science. Narrated by "The Howard Stern Show" radio personality and Destination America veteran Jon Hein, FOOD FACTORY premieres on Monday, January 14 at 10 and 10:30 PM (E/P) on Destination America.

"This snack-filled series will nostalgically transport viewers back to their childhood, when raiding their parents' pantry was like discovering a treasure trove of sugary, salty fun," said Marc Etkind, senior vice president of content strategy for Destination America. "FOOD FACTORY is like winning a golden ticket to go see the Willy Wonka - but then you'll never look at a chocolate bar the same way again."

Throughout the 26-episode first season of FOOD FACTORY, viewers go behind the scenes of some of the most mouth-watering food factories, including Lay's, Tootsie Roll, Dannon, Planters, PepsiCo, Quaker and more. FOOD FACTORY reveals the manufacturing processes behind common edibles, with each episode going behind the scenes at high-tech factories to feature the transformation of four different products from raw materials to finished treats. Mixing, chopping, sifting, filling, freezing, boiling, and wrapping are just a few of the transfixing steps viewers witness in each episode. Brand ambassadors and factory employees also chime in to recount the product's history in American cuisine, touching on nostalgic elements in pop culture as well as the product's evolution over the decades.

In the premiere episode of FOOD FACTORY at 10 PM (E/P), discover how Chapman's perfect ice cream cones, Pop Shoppe's retro fizzy soda pop, Primo's pasta, and the world's best chewing gum, Dubble Bubble, are produced for the masses. Then at 10:30, learn how Campbell's trusty condensed vegetable soup, Tootsie Roll's sweet and chewy Razzles, Wiser's fine Canadian whiskey, and Bridor Bakery's sweet sticky brioche gets from the warehouse to your cupboard. From raw materials to finished products, FOOD FACTORY reveals the wonders of how food is really made.

FOOD FACTORY is produced by Cineflix Productions with Simon Lloyd and Philip Whelan as executive producers. For Destination America, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Marc Etkind is senior vice president, content strategy and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
