© National Geographic Society 458 Kodachrome by Iowell Walker Cold Storage, Ending a Vast Waste of Meat, Put Port Chalmers on the Map New Zealand used to boil down sheep carcasses just for the tallow, which could stand shipment. Port Chalmers, deep-water gateway to Dunedin, revolutionized the Dominion's meat industry in 1882 with a frozen cargo. Each year now the country exports some 340,000 tons of meat, largely to the mother country. Scotsmen, settling this area in the 1840's, made it a little Scotland. Their descendants still speak with a burr.
