BIZ-A-P-COFFEE-BAGGING-PLANTToledo-News-Bee-photogra

Toledo News Bee photographer George Blount took this photo published May 30, 1936, at the A & P coffee packaging operation at 719 Brown Ave. near Detroit Avenue. At that time, A & P sold 15 percent of the coffee Americans drank every day, and a good part of it was processed and distributed in Toledo. The Toledo plant’s roasters could process 500 pounds of coffee every 18 minutes. Because unground coffee retained its flavor longer than ground coffee, A & P delivered its three brands of coffee to its stores unground.
