Your Family History - - Food, Glorious Food! -

Pre­serv­ing food in tin-lined can­is­ters was patented by Bri­tish mer­chant Peter Du­rand in 1810. The method was used by Bryan Donkin at his fac­tory in Ber­mond­sey to pro­duce canned goods for the Bri­tish army from 1812. How­ever, it did not be­come pop­u­lar un­til 1866, when Bri­tain started im­port­ing Aus­tralian tinned meat.
