Maker Westco Foods Co.

Maker Details The can has a Kroger Foods Foundation seal of approval. Kroger Food Foundation began in 1930, making it the first grocery company to test food scientifically in order to monitor the quality of products. That means this cannister is post 1930.Also copy right date by Brand says 1931. So that means it is atleast from 1931, if not older.

Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes Dirty/dusty top. Top is tarnished, the body of the can has a few spots of dirt. Bottom rim also tarnished, and dirty. Someone wrote in pencil on front, 10. I assume because it costs 10 cents.
