Anniversary Packaging of Canned Nasi Goreng

Label from canned nasi goreng from 1966, made by the Nieuwenhuizen company. The label shows a Javanese servant presenting the dish. In his hand he holds a gong, which is marked with the crossed keys of Leiden, the symbol of the factory. On the side we find instructions on how to prepare the fried rice (nasi goreng) ourselves.
