Horizons, chaînes et rivages frigorifiques en France, 1900-1930. : Marchés alimentaires, modernités techniques et pêches industrielles

Abstract : The article analyses the implementation of two refrigeration systems in France in the first third of the 20th century. The first system supplied Argentinian meat to the Allied armies of the First World War. The second system, both halieutic and civil, was grafted onto the first one as part of the post-war industrial modernization of France. It includes, among other things, a refrigeration line for the exploitation of cod fish between Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon and Lorient. This line, which was under a mixed public-private administration, came to an economic failure at the end of the 1920s due to consumer resistance. Industrial modernity can thus be characterised, in the case of food refrigeration, by the concepts of systematisation and boarding of nature.
