Book Description

The story of the development of bacon curing technology merged with the present day account of friends setting up a bacon plant in Cape Town.   I decided to use selected events from the story of Woody’s, re-cast them in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and tell the story of the creation of bacon.

The historical setting is the time when modern meat curing was born in Denmark, England, Germany and the USA.  It is also the time when the South African meat industry came of age under the leadership of David de Villiers-Graaff.  Besides these, the culture at the Cape, as it is today, was fascinating.  Life was vibrant and political currents, foundational to understand the present day South Africa.

Every effort has been made to ensure that all references to people and events from the 1800’s, 1900’s and 2000’s are actual and historically accurate.  Any misrepresentation is my own fault and will be rectified if such errors are pointed out.

I am currently re-writing this in its entirety.
