The Swedish Preserving Union was formed in 1898 by the amalgamation of the ten leading anchovy-packing and canning concerns on the Swedish West-Coast, just north of Gothenburg. All the factories are interested in the company as shareholders, and the fusion was mainly brought about to permit the members to specialize in their own particular lines and thereby perfect their processes and products. Whereas no change was made in the management of the factories, the sale and distribution was to be handled entirely from the company's head office.

The company in addition to the fish-preserving carries on an important vegetablecanning enterprise for peas, haricots verts, beans, spinage, asparagus, mushrooms — to mention only a few of the products — all grown on the company's own farm near Gothenburg.

The products of the company are guaranteed to be made from sound and pure materials. The manufacture is controlled by a specially appointed Government analyst.

The company's products have met with great favour not only in Sweden but abroad as well. The great number of customers in Europe and in overseas-countries and the many awards are distinct proofs of the high quality of the products.

All shipments are made from Gothenburg.

The seed farms co-operating with the firm are mostly situated in Central Sweden north of the 58th line of latitude. While the climate of these regions is favourable enough to ensure full development and maturity of hardy and thriving varieties, it is sufficiently severe to kill off anything that is weak.

All seeds — even though of constant and resistant varieties—-are subject to such Regeneration (lCgencrattion as results from admixture and infection. The firm counteracts this tendency by making a fresh selection whenever this seems to be necessary. Apart from the task of regenerating existing varieties, extensive breeding work is carried on by Gosta Eriksson, agriculturist, the scientific expert of the firm, notably with Red Clover with a view of producing new varieties of oustanding merits as regards yield, quality of the hay, resistance against disease and drought, endurance of cold, etc. Two such varieties, the Gbta Red Clover, and the Greyish lied Clover have lately been placed on the market by the firm.

The Control Office co-operating with the Seed Laboratory is charged with the work of

constant supervision. Every pareel of seed has to pass examination at least three times before being approved for sale as best seed: 1. on the field shortly after the formation of the grain; 2. after threshing; 3. after cleaning.
