California Canners and Growers was formed in 1957 with capital contributions from California fruit and vegetable growers. The cooperative, which processed, distributed, and marketed members’ crops, was the largest company of its kind in the U.S. and, at one time, controlled 65% of the nation’s diet canned fruit market. The company declared bankruptcy in 1983.
