Clarence Birdseye; Frozen food pioneer

birdseye_0

Clarence Birdseye was born on 9th December 1886. He is considered to be the founder of the modern frozen food industry. The “Birds Eye” name remains a leading frozen-food brand, now  owned by Pinnacle Foods in North America and by private equity group Permira in Europe. I wonder what Birdseye would have thought of the 2013 meat adulteration scandal!
