Clarence Birdseye

An American inventor and entrepreneur who developed the modern method of freezing food. Previous freezing methods occurred more slowly, which resulted in larger ice crystals and reduced food quality. Birdseye overcame this by freezing at lower temperatures. This development led directly to the retail sale of frozen food. He lived from 1886 to 1956.
