Advertisement for Belleville Canning Company from brochure 'Belleville on the Bay" published in 1902.

An entry in "Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte" reads as follows:

"RANSLER B. MORDEN, great-grandson of the pioneer Joseph Morden was born at Hallowell in 1846, and after some years spent in agricultural pursuits sold his farm and located at Picton, where he engaged in the machinery business until 1890, when he settled in Belleville, where he now resides. He was instrumental in founding the Belleville Canning Company, which is the largest canning establishment in Canada. The Bay of Quinte district has a wide reputation for fruit and vegetable growing, so that the cannery is most advantageously situated. The company cans and packs choice fruits and vegetables, their specialties being peas, corn and tomatoes. Their registered trade mark is Queen Victoria's head and bust; and their output is known as the "Queen Brand." Their immense plant has a frontage of one hundred and seventy feet, is three storeys high, has a depth of three hundred feet, and is built entirely of brick. Their present firm consists of R. B. Morden and S. P. HAGERMAN. Mr. Morden is a Methodist and belongs to the Liberal party."
