Raisins Shipping Crate

Description (Brief)
This end panel is from a Sun-Maid Raisin shipping crate. In 1912, a group of California farmers formed the California Associated Raisin Company with the goal of stabilizing fluctuating prices in the raisin market. The cooperative introduced the Sun-Maid brand of raisins in 1914. To capitalize on the success of the brand, the co-operative renamed itself the Sun-Maid Raisin Growers of California in 1922, which it remains today.
