The production of milk and pork was both a problem and an opportunity for the Soviet Union. The rebirth in the production of these products is best represented in the introduction of tushonka, a pork product. With the restructuring of fields and farms to accommodate newly-instituted forms of socialist production, existing kitchens and shops also evolved. This chapter looks at developments instituted in the food processing and distribution sectors in the Soviet Union. It also notes how the Second World War changed patterns of consumption and availability of meat products in the state, and how canned foods became essential during this period. The demand for canned pork from the United States increased during the war and this resulted in a severe food shortage.
