How They Affected You
During the twelve months
ended Nov. 2, 1918 (its fiscal
year), Swift & Company trans-
acted the largest volume of busi-
ness on the smallest margin of
profit in its history.
Profits of the meat business—under
I regulations of the United State; Food
Administration — were limited to a
maximum of 9 per cent on capital
employed but not to exceed 23 -• cents
1 er dollar of sa'es.
Swift & Company in the regulated
departments eurntd 7-57 per c<. it on
capital employed and 2-04 cenis per
dollar of sales, out of which had to be
paid interest on borrowed money and
taxes. Here is how these earnings
Swift & Company killed 14,918,000
head ot livestock, which weighed
alive, 4,971,500,000 pounds.
Swift & Company made a profit of
only a fraction of a cent per pound
The sales of our meat departments
were 4,012,579,000 pounds on which
our earnings were less than ^ cent
The per capita consumption of meat
in the United States is given as 170
pounds. If a consumer purchased only
Swift & Company's products he would
contribute only about 78 cents a year,
or lH cents a week as profit to the
