The cannery in the Portland area is called Four Star Foods, and I, Rex Pierson, am the "owner/operator".
We offer four ways to meet your food storage needs:
*you may bring bulk products in to pack that you have purchased elsewhere;
*you may buy bulk from us, and pack it yourself here into #10 cans;
*we can pack it for you;
*you can buy already canned food that we keep in stock.
Our canned inventory is on our web site:
Four Star Foods
Any folks who visit the cannery can buy our products at a nice discount (we like visitors).
