Stokely Van Camp
Tamal Packing, George N. Herbert Packing Company
Stokely Van Camp was an east coast based canner. Van Camp moved into the California market by opened operations in California in 1922 starting negotiations to buy three canneries. They purchased four plants: the Tamal Packing plant in San Francisco, George N. Herbert Packing Company canneries in Gridley and San Jose, and an olive cannery in Oroville.
The company had a plant on Campbell Ave. in San Jose (near Santa Clara border) with a private refrigerated warehouse.
Stokely Van Camp eventually merged into Tri-Valley Growers.
