Today’s Trademark- Betty Crocker
Betty Crocker has created 99 years ago, in the year 1921 by Washburn-Crosby and advertiser Bruce Barton. In 1928, Washburn Crosby merged with other milling companies to form General Mill. For almost a century, the company has been a source of modern cooking instruction and recipe invention. Betty Crocker is a fictional character and the name was created by the company. Betty was chosen as the name was considered friendly and the surname was chosen to honor a popular and recently retired director of the company William Crocker.
The first product with the Betty Crocker name was introduced in 1942 which was a dried soup mix. Betty’s trademarked Red Spoon began appearing on their packaging in 1954 and now appears on 200 plus products produced by the company.
