Milk industrialist Elbridge Amos Stuart (below) created Carnation evaporated milk
and its famous slogan, that it came from “Contend Cows”. Stuart and a fellow
business partner founded the Pacific Coast Condensed Milk Company in Kent,
Washington. The company was soon renamed Carnation Sterilized Cream when
Stuart noticed a sign with the name Carnation in the window of a tobacco store
in downtown Seattle. That name was later changed to Carnation Evaporated
Milk. Nestlé acquired the Carnation Company in 1985.
