In context:
Evaporated milk was a popular product before refrigerators were common in homes, but is now a niche product mainly used in baking and other recipes.

Pet, Inc., was an American company that was the first to commercially produce evaporated milk as a shelf-stable consumer product and later became a multi-brand food products conglomerate. Its signature product, PET Evaporated Milk, is now a product of The J.M. Smucker Company.

PET Dairy is a regional brand of fresh and processed dairy products in the Southeastern United States made by the Land-O-Sundivision of Dean Foods. Many of the remaining brands once owned by Pet, Inc. are currently part of General Mills.
