Oregon Growers Co-operative As
sociation to Revolutionize
SALEM, Or., July 28. (Special.)
The process of handling berries and
other fresh fruit by the cold-pack
method will be practically revolu
tionized by the new process-put into
use for the first time this year by
the Oregon Growers' Co - operative
association. Barreling and subse
quent refrigeration of the fresh ber
ries have been practiced for some
time, but this has been supplanted
by the use of five-gallon lacquered
cans. . The fruit is placed in cans in
fresh condition and sealed, after
which they are frozen hard and
placed in cold storage.
The advantages claimed for this
process are that the frunit is cooled
in less time, containers are small,
which encourages a greater distri
bution amoftg consumers of small
quantities and because of their size,
the cans are less expensive to nan
It is reported that the association
has packed a considerable quantity
of berries and other fresh fruit by
this process as an experiment. Fruit
