"Southland Frozen Meat Limited had its beginnings during a tine of difficulty, when a young country and province were struggling to rise to their feet. 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 "childhood" in a period of adversity. For its first 13 years the company reeled from difficulty to disaster, in spite of tantalizingly 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 takes the reader back into history for the companys formative years and through 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."
