The Food That Built The World

For generations, food titans like Henry Heinz, Milton Hershey, John and Will Kellogg, C.W. Post and the McDonald brothers have been household names, but you don’t know their stories. Before they were brand names, they were brilliant, sometimes ruthless, visionaries who revolutionised food and changed the landscape of the world forever. This miniseries tells the fascinating stories of the people behind the food that built the world – those who used brains, muscle, blood, sweat and tears to get to the public’s heart through its stomach, and along the way built cities, invented new technologies and helped win wars.
