HRPS Story: Meat Packing Industry with ZoAnn Campana

History HRPS Story: Meat Packing Industry with ZoAnn Campana

Reno once had a booming meatpacking industry, exemplified by Nevada Packing Company on E. 4th Street. Founded in 1902, the “Nevada Pack” grew into Nevada's only Federally-inspected packing plant. More than just a slaughterhouse, the company manufactured butter and ice, distributed beer and liquor, and smoked its own bacon and hams. Most notably, the company foreshadowed the locavore movement as we know it today, sourcing its animals and other materials from local ranches and farms.
