A-MEN's Night Out Twenty three men enjoyed a fact filled, albeit, a very hot evening, touring one of several Del Monte vegetable processing plants and seeing string beans becoming a finished food product.

Before we began our tour, retired plant manager, Roger Jacob, explained the vegetable growing process to our men. He explained how fields are scheduled for planting so that sweet corn, string beans, potatoes and beets keep the local Del Monte plant going 24 hours a day during the harvesting season. Vegetables begin arriving from central Illinois, then southern Wisconsin and then locally, so that the canning season lasts from early April to December.

We watched as one of many 27 ton semi load of string beans was unloaded in 35 minutes and within an hour of being unloaded was cleaned, sorted, typed, cooked, canned and placed in the warehouse. As we walked through the processing plant, our men were amazed at the numerous speeding belts of beans moving in several directions carrying processed product.

Several tons of vegetable products are processed during each shift.

After our tour, the A-MEN enjoyed snacks and fellowship in the administrative building.

Our three tour guides were thanked and shown our appreciation.
