The History and Impact of Canned Food

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1949″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

Where Canned began

An Englishman, Peter Durand, developed a method of sealing food into unbreakable metal containers, which was perfected by Bryan Dorkin and John Hall, who set up the first commercial canning factory in England in 1813***.

As more and more of the world was explored, and as provisioning armies took on greater importance, the demand for canned foods grew***. More than 50 years later, Louis Pasteur provided the explanation for canning’s effectiveness when he was able to demonstrate that the growth of microorganisms is the cause of food spoilage***.
