"The cleanliness of the whole place amazed me. I don't meen that it is clean as judged by factory standards, but clean according to any standard, "We women control the purse- strings when it comes to buy- ing biscuits, and it's no won- der Christie, Brown Co. are glad to have us inspect their factory. To my mind it is the strongest advertise- ment they could have. "You'd be surprised to see the staff that is kept busy, day in and day out all the year cleaning, cleaning. "The windows, floors, walls, ceilings, machinery, speak volumes for the sanitary conditions under which Chris- tie's Biscuits are made. "It's a picture to see the 'Christie Girls' over three hundred of spotless white. Each girl is supplied with two complete uniforms a week from the firm's pri- vate laundry. "At every turn I found fresh evidence of the unusual care which is taken to preserve absolute cleanliness. "It was explained to me how every ounce of raw material is tested, and how, at each step throughout the process of mixing, baking and packing, the Christie quality is jeal- ously guarded. "I am convinced that if every woman in Canada could visit the Christie factory as I did, they would not'think of us- ing any but Christie's Biscuits in future." The best Grocers everywhere in Canada have Christie's Bis- cuits. Sold in bulk, by the pound, or in moisture and dust-proof packages.
