Let Your Cooking Fat Buy For You J Meat dealers are finding the higher price now being paid for used cooking fat is profi table to them as well as to their customers. By advertis ing the increased price kitchen grease brings, and suggesting the money be applied to othei purchases, meat dealers in crease their sales by helping customers to offset high food prices. . Recently in Laconia, N. H., John's IGA Store told women, "Don't kick about high prices. 'Help yourself by getting out your used cooking fat and let ting it buy some food for you." This advertisment pointed out that if women brought in one pound of kitchen grease, they could buy black pepper for 3 cents a can ; chicken soup for 6 cents a can ; coffee for 27 cents a pound ; frankfurters for 17 cents a pound ; plus 32 other products at considerable savings. "This trend on the part of grocers to stress used fat re tail prices checks with a re cent survey showing that women are not only turning in more fat, but are insisting upon being paid for it," the American Fat Salvage Com mittee states. Since the end of OPA, when retail price paid for used cooking fat was pegged at 4 cents a pound, fat salvage collections have nearly tripled, while prices paid for used cooking fat are three to five times higher than their pre vious figure.
