The Southland Frozen Meat and Produce Export Company offered bright prospects for the new settlers of a largely untamed land. But it had an uneasy beginning in a period of adversity. For its first 13 years the company reeled from difficulty to disaster, in spite of tantalisingly fleeting glimpses of how impressive its potential was to the people of Southland, and how its success promoted the very welfare of the province.
Then in 1895 financial catastrophe struck. Seemingly, it could not continue. But the rallying call went out through the province. Soon it became apparent that the company would not only be saved, but that it would grow from strength to strength. That it did as it diversified over several decades into land development and other activities allied with its main object - the killing, processing and freezing of animals for export.
This book gives the history of the company's formative years and its period of consolidation. Later it goes behind the scenes and into the board room to show how some of the largest commercial decisions of the province were made.
Illustrated with b&w and colour images, maps on end papers.
