An automatic weighing machine at left drops frozen airplane rivets, previously cooled to about 45 below zero Fahrenheit, into cellophane bags, which are then heat sealed by machine at right. They will now go to holding refrigerators, until called for on the assembly line.

A square meal in 1943 style. The young lady is about to remove the cellophane wrapper from a double portion of mashed potatoes. In their present form they are dehydrated and compressed. Soaking for a few seconds in water makes them swell to many times this size. On the dinner plate are squares of compressed beef (the dark one), onions and carrots, each square containing serving for two people. In the cup is a square of compressed coffee (enough for three cups). In the soup plate is a double serving of cream of cabbage soup. In the other two plates, left to right, are chocolate pudding and eggs-sealed by heat, protects each item from dampness, germs, dust and other contamination. Saving of cargo space, ranging from 30 to 80 percent as compared to ordinary dehydration, depending on the food, has caused compression to be considered for Lend-Lease and Army food shipments. The process was developed by the Auto Ordnance Company of Greenwich, Connecticut and the packaging was worked out by the DuPont Company's Cellophane Division.
