The broadcast debut of a “Food Factory” segment on Mann Packing Co.’s sweet potato crinkle cut fries was set for Feb. 21.
“Food Factory,” a series created for Food Network Canada, appears on Discovery Channel subsidiary Destination America and in more than 160 nations.
The episode was to air at 9:30 p.m. Eastern, according to a news release.
The show, filmed in October at California Fresh Farms – a Mann Packing subsidiary processing facility in Delhai, Calif. – follows the path of sweet potato fries from peeling and cutting to packaging and retail shelves.
“We’re planning other promotional activities throughout Canada this year to celebrate our 75th anniversary in business and further support sales of our full line of fresh cut vegetables,” Lorri Koster, chairman and chief executive officer of Salinas, Calif.-based Mann Packing, said in the release.
