Tillamook Cheese packaging department, 1975

This is one of my favorite photos in our company archives. It shows some of the ladies from our packaging department in 1975. It’s their hair. The tall beehive hairdos perfectly covered in a giant hairnet with the little ruffle at the edge. It makes me smile every time I run across this photo. I hope you enjoy it, too. 

Today, Good Manufacturing Practices requires all employees in the cheesemaking or packaging areas to wear hairnets and completely cover their hair to protect product integrity. The hairnets aren’t this large anymore. Then again, neither are the hairstyles!
