TVF gobbles up food docs

UK-based distributor TVF International has acquired rights to three food-themed documentaries that aired on France 5.

Tuna: What’s in a Can?, Where Has All the Fruit Gone? and Secrets of the French Bakery Industry comprise the trio, which come from Paris indie Pernel Media. TVF has all rights except France and Belgium.

Tuna: What’s in a Can? is a consumer affairs doc about the tuna can, while Where Has All the Fruit Gone? explores misinformation surrounding fruit products and their nutritional value.

Secrets of the French Bakery Industry explores the process that are behind artisanal, hand-made pastry creations in France.

“TVF has great success with high-end investigative programming – we’re delighted to partner with Pernel Media on these excellent titles which our sales team looks forward to launching globally at MIPDoc and MIPTV,” said TVFI’s head of acquisitions, Alice Hamlett.
