F. P. Cutting Company
F. P. Cutting Company was one of the earliest canners in California. Started in 1859 by Francis Cutting, the cannery on Main Street in San Francisco packed fruit, jams, jellies, tomatoes, and other products. Cutting was canning pears, peaches, and apricots by 1863. Others had been canning in California previously - D. Provost repacked pickles and jams shipped from the east coast, and Erzgarber and Gotzen packed jams and jellies. However, Cutting was the first canning local fruit.
