There are cold storage warehouses at various points in Canada, at which the eggs are collected, sorted and packed before shipment.
The creameries are provided with special cold storage rooms, into which the butter is placed on the same day in which it is made.
From them it is carried in refrigerator railway cars and in cold storage chambers on steamships to its ultimate destination.
Through this branch of the public service a complete chain of cold-storage accommodation between various points in Canada and markets in Europe, particularly in Great Britain, has been arranged.
The government offered a bonus to those owners of creameries who would provide cold-storage accommodation at them and keep the room in use for a period of three years.
