FIRST PRODUCTION ON THIS DAY IN 1899

cmpc

In 1898, the Washington Condensed Milk Company established a condensing
plant in Kent, Washington. Within one and one-half years the company went
bankrupt. The Pacific Coast Condensed Milk Company, established by Elbridge
Amos Stuart (below), acquired the plant and in 1899, produced the first cases
of evaporated milk, called Carnation Sterilized Cream. The company would later
change its name and become the world famous Carnation Milk Company.
