1904 'Mr. W. Jacques, who has accepted the position of fruit and vegetable canning expert for the colony, left London on the 19th inst. for New Zealand, and should therefore reach the colony towards the end of May. Mr Jaques was for eleven years manager for Messrs Cunningham, De Fourier and Co., Limited, the well-known manufacturers of canned preserves, Glencairn Works, India Docks road, London. He had the supervision of all their manufactures, and is well-qualified for the new duties he is taking up, having a thorough knowledge of the canned goods markets of London, Liverpool and elsewhere. The new expert's duties will be to instruct fruit-growers in the work of canning their products. At the present time a large waste of fruit goes on every season throughout the colony, and it is hoped that by proper instruction and placing the industry on something like an organized footing, a good export trade will in time be opened up.'[3]
