We have come to take it for granted that whatever food we desire, we can buy somewhere 24/7, but at what cost? BBC3 looks at the human cost of supplying this endless supply chain.
In this programme six young Brits, typical consumers of the end products, go and work with south east Asians and find out how rice, chicken, prawns and tuna are sourced and prepared for export and for our ultimate consumption.
They sleep, wake, work, eat and sleep again as they try surviving on the typical food worker’s salary of three pounds a day.
In this programme they work in the Tuna industry in Sulawesi. We Brits consumer over a billion cans of tuna each year, and we see the factories which supply to our supermarkets and sandwich factories.
