The Food Chain aims to trace the journeys of Britain's best-loved foods from field and sea to dining table. Monday's episode, on Channel 4 at 8.30pm, looks at two British staples, sea salt and English Bramley apples.

It follows the apples' transformation from Kentish orchards through the Fourayes factory to finished products.

Fourayes managing director Phil Acock said: 'It's fantastic that people can see the journey that a great British fruit like the Bramley apple takes. Although we make jams, fillings and many other products from a wide variety of fruits at Fourayes, the English Bramley apple holds a very special place in our hearts."
