The story of the development of food preservation is as old as the story of man. Cavemen and nomadic tribesmen have little heed to food preservation. They threw away the food left when their hunger was satisfied and searched for more when famished . However, from the time men began to settle down and have permanent homes, the need for some means of retarding food spoilage has been evident.
