Bag - Mocopan Food Processing Co, Coffee, circa 1950s-1970s Reg. No: SH 000942
- Paper Mocopan bag used by Mocopan Food Processing Company at Preston to package and brand their produce. Mocopan was established by Agostino Monici, Sergio Coperchini and Vic Panettieri in 1953. The name was an amalgamation of the surnames of the three men. Mocopan was originally composed of three sections; coffee processing and sales; the production of smallgoods, and the processing of polenta flour. The smallgoods were unsuccessful and both Coperchini and Panettieri left the company, a succession of partners followed, including Frank Dimattina. Mocopan was managed by the Dimattina's until 1995 when it was sold to a multi-national.
- Rectangular brown paper bag with a scroll printed on it containing the Mocopan logo six pointed star with southern cross in top point and extensive text.
