During World War II the amount of time spending in preparing meals for children was limited for women. They were needed more in the workforce to keep up the war effort while the men were out in the battlefield. To help the frozen food industry began to dramatically change. Plus post-war the women began to rely on TV dinners for greater convenience, and to save time.
The T. V. Dinner
The T. V. Dinner
In 1950 after Swanson died the company was renamed C. A. Swanson & Sons when the sons took over the company. Initially they focused on manufacturing frozen oven-ready chicken and turkey pot pies in aluminum trays. Later the Swanson executive, Gerry Thomas, visited the distributor of a company that specialized in preparing food for airlines. He suggested to the brothers that they use aluminum trays with compartments. One for the main entree and the other two for sides. Thus they created the Swanson T. V. dinner.
