Food Investigation: a Retrospect and the Future


    THE reconstitution of the Food Investigation Board in the autumn of 1934 provided an occasion for a review of the work accomplished by the Board during the seventeen years of its existence and the determination of the lines along which further progress should be sought. Not only have general solutions been found, in the gas-storage of fruit and chilled meat and in the brine-freezing of fish, for the three main problems with which the Board was faced when originally established, but at the same time great advances have also been made in the science that underlies the storage and handling of foodstuffs.
