Foster Farms Dairy will be featured on Food Network's new primetime series "How'd That Get On My Plate?" The series airs at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
"The host of the series, Sunny Anderson, had a great experience on location while traveling behind the scenes of milk production," according to a news release. "Anderson learns the importance of happy cows as she visits a dairy farm in California."
Anderson visited Foster Farms Dairy farm in Denair and the Foster Farms processing plant in Modesto, where she shows how milk is bottled for consumption and transformed into mint chocolate chip ice cream.
She also follows the production of string cheese at a Wisconsin plant and milk chocolate at a Chicago plant, according to Food Network.
In the series, Anderson, also host of "Cooking For Real," follows the journey of a single ingredient (such as eggs, garlic, honey or apples) as it moves from its raw state to finished product.
Anderson travels the country showcasing the technology and innovation it takes to produce today's favorite foods.
Foster Farms Dairy, a spinoff of the Foster Farms chicken operation, is headquartered in Modesto. It was founded in 1939.
