FRUIT JOBBERS TO MEET IN SAN FRANCISCO.
The Western Fruit Jobbers' Association of America will hold their annual session in San Francisco, beginning Monday, February 2.
In the use of the word "western" one would naturally think that the association was composed of men representing the fruit and vegetable industry west of Chicago, or west of the Rocky Mountains,
but not so. It represents all sections of the United States. It may be news to many that this small body of men handle a quarter of a billion dollars' worth of California fruits and vegetables annually.
Wherever they hold their session representatives of allied industries meet with them and discuss matters relative to transportation, icing cars, manufacturing of fruit boxes and crates,
and fruit express service. The meetings are open to the public, and it will be interesting as well as instructive to both the producer and consumer, should they be in attendance.
All of the fruit interests of California are represented—the smallest independent orange packer and shipper, as well as the great Southern California Fruit Growers Exchange; the smallest deciduous fruit packer and shipper as well as the California Fruit Distributors, and the California Fruit Exchange—deciduous fruit handlers.
Their coming to California is not solely for the purpose of attending the convention, but they will branch out from San Francisco, and visit the various fruit sections of the state, where they meet the growers, and are then able to explain to them the changes they might make in the handling and packing of their fruit.
Thanks for looking,
