SEPTEMBER 27, 1945 i HERALD-REPORTER, BREWSTER, WASHINGTON 00l/rl, .L 00"he APPLE COMMISSION REPORTS: About Consumer Packages A consumer package is a small quantity of merchandise put up conveniently in a parcel that seems to b about the right size and price for the average house- wife purchaser. There seems to :e no limit  downward on haw small the package can be -- there certainly is a limit upward for the bigger the package the fewer calls there will be for it. Now, there has been a great deal of talk in he apple industry Tegariing consumer packaging of apples and there are those who believ the Apple C.ommission should take some part in it. The Apple Commission has and will-- it is on the schedule for consumer research ad we will report our findings to you. Because nature grows apples ...... in. various sizes, apples present something of a problem in small size packages. It has been dis- covered through the trial-and-er- ror method by the Commission's ,dealer service men, that if house- wives or purchasers prefer a snall package, they prefer one retailing for about 25 cents. These containers, of fibre with a cellophane window, should be at- tractively designed and contain only top condition of fruit, for, obviously, they must bring a pre- mium price. The package and handling is an expensive opera- tion. In some particular markets to- day, the loose packed 20 lb. half box is a good seller. It is limite +o .qale in areas, however, where ""  ..... 1 .t 9.cold and , .... ..  pLeserve  condi- tion is not a problem. Our Los Angeles dealer service representative, in order to make a -test on 10 lb: sales, procured -: 3500 rmesh bags one season, had  , i:" for the bag. The apples sold wiee as quickly from the bulk displays and the experiment was ended by -th'gT-ers ncerned finally era- tying the bags into the bulk dis- llays! This in spite of the fact that the chains, in some instances :2:HTmmmJmeir sales of ci-  by four time i:of 10 lb. shp- [_ "th fruit or. po- 'e housewife to take to the checking stand. It is, however, the feeling of some that an attractively printed container, filled only with top condition fruit and launch'ed with effective educational advertising, should click. The box Should pro- minetly identify its contents as Washington Apples a 5 or 6 apple container for those living in apartment houses with only limited refrigeration space for storage, with a larger container fr-the larger family-in-a-home type of buyer is indicated. Whether these containers can be packed at the beginning or the end-of the line is another matter- our first job will be to test con- sumer preference by actually ask- ing American ,housewives, in Gal- lap Poll fashion, how she would like to buy her apples. If enough housewives would like packaged apples, it would seem to indicate a profitable repackaging business omeplace down the line for an enterprising handler. Certainly ear past attempts to package at the beginning ef the line with a 30100 mile haul ahead of us, have not ,been too successful except in the gift box business and that is an entirely different business. There are those who say "Don't package here's one product here you can't improve on na- ture!" We are not today inclined ' take old thinking as the ordy thinking -- past failures or sue- ceases notwithstanding. The indus- try should decide for or against consumer packaging as an import- ant postwar marketing channel ", only after careful research--and then no matter what the findings are,-recheck at regular intervals. The marketing af apples is a con- tinuing problem and the masur- ing of consumer desires is a con- tinuing task for many forces exist i to change buying habits.

PHILIP DANFORTH ARMOUR, a New . York farm boy, set forth in a covered ;cross the western plains follow- alifornia gold rush in the fifties. *stock of the middle west ira- " :presd the young man from the farm more han did the gold in California, and after a few years he returned and started with meager capital in the meat field as a provisions broker m Milwaukee. In 1863 he became junior partner in a relatively small Milwaukee packing firm, and in 1867 he founded Armour hnd Company in Chi- cago on a modest foundation. Under his guidance and that of his suc- cessors, Armour and Company has since expanded into a great concern with 34 large packing plants in North America, 6 in South America, 300 branch distributing houses in the United States and selling agencies in most of the white man's world --a gigantic business enterprise employ- :ing more than 60.000 persons. Now, the world-famous firm of Armour and Company is among the important, valued customers of The National Bank of Commerce which itself started more than a half century ago as a small institution to become the 48th largest bank in the United States today. Such knowledge of the humble origin of many great concerns among customers of The National Bank of Commerce has impressed the fact that virtually all suc- cessful businesses of today were once small. Our basic policy is to extend the ful co-operation of all our departments to the welfare of individuals or firms with sound, although modest, operations. This prac- tice is active as well as fundamental with us. Small business receives sympathetic, constructive consideration here. \\; BREWsTER BRANCH. BREWsTER CARROLL V.
