Publisher: Narkomprod (People's Commissariat of Food Production)
Publishing Date: c.1919
Publisher Notes: Narkomprod (People's Commissariat of Food Supply) was formed in 1917 to assist with the procurement of foodstuffs during the civil war. The New Economic Policy (NEP) from 1921 to 1928, a period when limited free market economics were permitted in the Soviet Union, led to the termination of food rationing and mass requisitioning and in turn, this forced the closure of Narkomprod in 1924.
