Abstract:

This report is the third and final in a series of reports on DoD milk plants in the Pacific and discusses the U.S. Army Kanagawa milk plant in Japan. Since 1947, the Army has maintained a Government-owned, contractor-operated milk plant in Yokohama, Japan, to provide milk and other dairy products to DoD personnel and their families. The milk plant operation was formerly necessary because fresh milk and other dairy products are highly perishable and could not be economically shipped from the United States without spoiling. In addition, DoD could not purchase milk and other dairy products from local dairy sources because Japanese dairies did not meet U.S. health standards.
