Food Processing and Manufacture
Over 2800 linear feet of material from the 19th and 20th centuries
California has long reigned as the undisputed leader in agricultural production, preservation, and distribution. The collections in this category focus specifically on the development of technologies and structures allowing the vast acreage of produce grown in the state to reach the tables of consumers worldwide. While the focus is on food processing in California, commercial enterprises outside of California are not excluded.
Most of the materials are in the English language. Related materials can be found under the headings of Agriculture, Plant Science, and Viticulture and Enology.
