Pleasant Grove Canning Company

1919, 1924 (2 plants), 1936 (2 plants)

Orem, Utah County

Pleasant Grove, Utah County

Production started at the Pleasant Grove factory in August 1916. (Salt Lake Telegram, August 7, 1916)

This is from Orem City's web site:

Pleasant Grove Canning Company

700 North Orem Boulevard

The first major industry to locate in Orem was the Pleasant Grove Canning Company. The plant was built at 325 West 700 North (currently Orem Boulevard) in 1919. This provided close proximity to the railroad that was located along Orem Boulevard. The cannery was owned and operated by the Pleasant Grove Canning Company, which had one other plant, in Pleasant Grove. The canning company was designed to provide an outlet for locally grown fruits and vegetables. Canned products included tomatoes, apples, cherries and strawberries.

During the 1930's the Pleasant Grove Canning Company was a major economic outlet for farmers' product at a time when there was little other industry around. During the "tomato pack" portion of the canning season, approximately one hundred people were employed at the plant. This had a positive effect on the local economy, infusing money into the economy which helped ease the hopelessness of the depression.

In an average year, the cannery took the tomato crops produced on the Provo Bench, as well as other areas, and processed up to 75,000 cases of tomato paste. The product was then sold to the Campbell Soup Company.

In 1972, the cannery was sold to Booth Distributing, Inc., a restaurant supply business, which used the building as a warehouse through the 1970's. Subsequent owners purchased the cannery but were unable to find a suitable commercial use for the  building. The building fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1993.

The present Cannery Cove Condominiums were built on the cannery site starting in 1997. They were named after the former Pleasant Grove Canning Co.

Rocky Mountain Packing Company

1927 - 1938 (One source says seven operations in 1936)

Ogden, Weber County

"Rocky Mountain Packing Corporation was formed in May 1927." "The seven plants of the corporation are situated in Ogden, Murray, Tremonton, Roy, Ephraim, Manti, and Draper, Utah, and have an annual capacity of 1,100,000 cases of peas, Tomatoes, beans, and other vegetables." (Ogden Standard, June 16, 1927)

Five Utah canning companies were consolidated on Tuesday April 19, 1927, operating seven canneries, to become Rocky Mountain Packing Corporation.

Rocky Mountain Packing started its 1938 pea campaign on June 18th, and was the first packer in Utah to use the new freezing process that was finding favor on the Pacific coast. The company would be operating five pea viners, and about one-sixth of the crop would be frozen. Along with peas, the company would freeze lima beans, string beans, and other vegetables. About 1 million pounds of frozen vegetables were produced. (Ogden Standard Examiner, June 14, 1938; January 8, 1939)

"Will Freeze Foods -- The Rocky Mountain Packing corporation, which only freezes products at its Ogden plant, is the only concern which will handle strawberries. Products which will be quick-frozen on a commercial basis this year include raspberries, cherries, peaches, apricots, peas, several varieties of beans, spinach and broccoll. Many of these were handled on an experimental basis last year. The California Packing corporation will enter the quick-freezing field this year with peas." (Ogden Standard Examiner, May 29, 1939)

July 25, 1945
"Salt Lake City, July 25 (AP) -- Hunt Foods, Inc„ fruit and vegetable canners on the Pacific coast, have acquired an interest in the Rocky Mountain Packing corporation, General manager J. J. Gimlin announced today. The coast corporation has plants in Washington, Oregon and California. Rocky Mountain owns five plants in Utah, at Murray, Tremonton, Manti, Ephraim and Ogden." (Ogden Standard Examiner, July 25, 1945)

February 10, 1960
The following cames from the Ogden Standard Examiner, February 10, 1960:

"Firm Gives Tremonton $168,000 Food Plant -- Tremonton -- The old Hunt Foods plant here was given to the city of Tremonton today. Deeds to the plant and other property, valued at $168,000, was presented to Mayor Reed Giles by D. J. Isom, former division manager of Hunt's Utah plants. The plant was closed at the end of the 1957 [sic] season. It had been purchased from the Rocky Mountain Packing Corp. in 1946 and used to pack peas and tomato sauce. The gift includes all of the company plant and property, located in Tremonton including machinery, equipment, fixtures, water rights and other propery. They gift was made without restriction, Mr. Isom said, and the city has freedom to make use of the properties or sell or lease them. Hunt plants in Ephraim and Manti were given to those cities following their closing in 1958."

(A story in the July 1, 1958 issue of Ogden Standard Examiner showed that Hunt Foods' Tremonton plant had started its pea campaign early due to warm weather, and was processing 100 cases per day. The peas were coming from 650 acres in the Bear River Valley, which were producing about 2-1/2 tons per acre. Double shifts were to begin at the plant in the first week of July.)

Hunt Foods of Utah was included in a consolidation of all of Hunt Foods' subsidiaries on October 1, 1958 that formed a new parent company, Hunt Foods and Industries, Inc. (Ogden Standard Examiner, October 9, 1958)

February 28, 1959
Hunt Foods announced that it would close its Murray and Tremonton plants. The Tremonton plant was to be used as a warehouse. (Ogden Standard Examiner, March 1, 1959, "yesterday")

The Murray plant was located at 4800 South and West Temple, just south of the Union Pacific Murray depot, on the east side of the tracks. It has its own spur.

West Ogden plant of Del Monte:

The site was first occupied in 1900 by Adams Nursery and Tin Can Manufacturers, which was reorganized in 1903 as Wasatch Gardens and Orchard Canning Company. The Adams company built the brick building that still stands at the original location. They installed can manufacturing equipment and later installed equipment for the canning of vegetables and fruits, being the first factory for the canning of fruits in the state of Utah.

The plant was purchased in 1914 by Jake Parker, and became the center of operations that included the five largest canneries in the state. In 1918 he sold all five plants to the Utah Packing Company, which was a subsidiary of the California Packing Company. After selling his canning interests in Utah to Utah Packing, Parker remained in the food canning business, and in 1933 built the American Provisioning plant that later became the Swift meat packing plant just north of the 24th Steeet viaduct.

(Elisha Warner, The History of Spanish Fork, 1930)

In spring 1928 bought the two canneries of the Morgan Canning Company, in Morgan and in Smithfield, along with that same company's green bean cannery in Hyrum.
