Answer found to market problem
W.C. Hines and Charles Wilkinson believe they have found an answer to the problem of marketing the herring catch on the North Shore in an experiment they have conducted in the manufacture of a highly delicious product made from filleted herring. Norwegian fish pudding made quite universally by Norwegian people, came to their attention through its being placed on the market locally by Mrs. Henry Schraa, who made a reputation for herself with her smorgasbord at her resort, “A Bit of Norway”, established near Beaver Bay early in 1938. The product won such approval with her customers that she placed it on sale in the Two Harbors stores. Hines and Wilkinson were so sold on the idea that they have been experimenting on its manufacture for several weeks. They believe they have solved the major problems in putting a very superior product on the market and are now selling about 300 pounds per week. It is being distributed -- in so far as their limited facilities are possible -- by the sausage trucks which make the Duluth territory. Herring brings not over 3 cents a pound in the wholesale market, but brings 35 cents a pound when transformed into pudding, takes a place beside Spam, a Hormel product which has been placed as a staple in the American home.
