The promoters of this Prospectus, in introducing it to the public, wish to draw attention to the benefit to be derived from the establishment in the County of Ashburton of Cheese and Butter Factories. (1) By the factory system the cost of manufacturing would be considerably lessened, and the consequent profit arising therefrom give a greater return to all interested, and by reason of the uniformity obtainable, a greater demand also for the manufactured article, at an increased value, would be the result.^ (2) Farmers, by selling their milk to the Company, will receive payment in cash, and consequently be in a position to purchase their goods at the store on a cash basis, which will not only he advantageous to themselves, but will also materially assist to place trade generally throughout the County on a sounder footing, and will likewise find an outlet for the butter and cheese made, which at present farmers and storekeepers have a great difliculty in doing. (3) It would be the means of opening up a steady paying market for the produce which at present —during some portion of the year—will barely meet working expenses, and ships now being fitted with refrigerating apparatus, combined with the prospect of direct steam communication at an early date with the Old Country, warrants the promoters in anticipating and offering such an outlet. All further information desired can be obtained from the Secretary or any of the Directors. Application forms for shares will be issued in a few days. S. E. POYNTZ, 968 c Interim Secretary.
