Food is a major preoccupation of mankind. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors roamed the wild forests, hunting game and collecting fruits. Man was a food gatherer in those days, not a producer. As time passed on, man felt the necessity of storing foods and discovered that dry foods like seeds, grains and nuts could keep well. It was soon observed that extra meat could be stored after drying the slices in the sun. The art of preserving meat by salting and smoking were also chance discoveries of man. As human civilization advanced, living became more complex. People began to live together in cities and move from one type of climate to another and the problems of food preservation became more difficult. Human ingenuity steadily overcame the difficulties and new methods of food preservation soon came into existence.
