A new television series going behind-the-scenes of leading BB75 bakery retailer Greggs will broadcast at the end of this month.

The Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD TV series entitled Greggs: More Than Meats The Pie will take a look at the business’ operations, following the day-to-day tasks of staff among its 20,000-strong workforce.

Created by television production company Mentorn Media, the documentary will showcase various areas of the business, including Greggs’ high street shops and bakery production areas.

On Sky’s website, Siobhan Mulholland, Sky’s commissioning editor for factual programming, said: "This is going to be a warm-hearted and fascinating insight into a much loved British institution. The access is impressive; the cameras will be in the shops, following the delivery trucks, following characters and even in the usually confidential tasting labs.”

Neil Grant, executive producer at Mentorn Media,  said: “What a fantastic opportunity and privilege to make a fun access series behind the scenes with the nation’s high street icon – this will be popular television at its very best!”

Greggs: More Than Meats The Pie airs on Monday 29 April on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD.
