Maker biography
Samuel Kirkpatrick established his food processing business in Nelson in 1881. The firm manufactured jam, canned fruit, vegetables and meat. The enterprise was greatly expanded in 1899, with the buidling of a large extension, and the move into the coffee and spice trade. The firm was taken over by J. Wattie Canneries in 1964, and was closed down in 1971.
