Excerpt from A History of the Frozen Meat Trade: An Account of the Development and Present Day Methods of Preparation, Transport, and Marketing of Frozen and Chilled Meats Much that is extremely interesting, and a little that is romantic, is to be found in the history of the industry to which this book is devoted, and the authors hope that the records which appear in these pages of the rise and progress of the frozen and chilled meat trades will justify the publication of this volume. Many works have appeared describing the beginnings and developments of the great wool industry, but nothing of an historical and exhaustive nature has ever been published in book form (although pamphlets and newspaper articles without number have been issued) about the frozen meat business. To provide food is, at least, as important as to supply clothing, and the one industry lends itself to description as readily as the other. The personnel of the pioneers who worked out the practical and technical problems of the preparation and transport of frozen meat - successfully sometimes, frequently otherwise - included men of a high order of intellect and character. To read Mr. Mort's speech, delivered on September 2, 1875, at the Lithgow Valley Works (see p. 20), is to be thrilled with some sense of the exaltation of spirit which must have inspired his hearers in contemplating the world-wide benefit to follow upon the exportation of Australia's surplus of meat, the hoped-for era so eloquently forecasted by Mort. The engineers engaged upon the freezing formulae, the shipowners endeavouring to alter their system to grapple with the new position created by the Strathleven shipment, the merchants and bankers in London applying themselves to the most important part of the whole trade - marketing the meat - deserve recognition in the printed page before the lapse of time destroys all records.
