Abstract
In Chapter IX of the First Report of the Committee of the Economic Advisory Council on Nutrition in the Colonial consideration was given to the question of the storage and preservation of foodstuffs. In paragraphs 195 and 196 of that Report mention was made that under colonial conditions the main problems of storage are not associated with the preservation of high grade commodities for the overseas markets, but rather with the maintenance, for local consumption, of stocks from one harvest to the next, from the crops grown by the individual or community, and the preservation of perishable products in order that they may be kept for a time and, if necessary, distributed over a wider area.
