Abstract
The transport of fresh vegetables to troops in the forward areas of Eastern Africa is an almost insuperable problem. Fresh vegetables are bulky and rapidly deteriorate, especially when roughly handled, as certainly they would be on the rough roads of the hitherto road less zones. Canned vegetables get over the difficulty of spoilage, but they too are very bulky a ton of fresh cabbage after canning weighs 4,500 lb. The production of dried vegetables in Kenya as a food supply for the troops was given us as a problem for immediate solution.
