Philodendron Leaf


In 1877 the Quaker Man and the Quaker Oats name are first used as a trademark name for breakfast cereal by Quaker Mill Company.

Henry Parsons Crowell acquires the bankrupt Quaker Mill Co. (which holds the Quaker trademark) in 1881.

In 1891 F. Schumacher Milling Company (German Mills American Oatmeal Co.) consolidated operations with Hower Oatmeal Company, Quaker Milling company, Cereal Milling Company, Rockford Oatmeal Milling Company and Iowa City Oatmeal Company to form The American Cereal Company in Akron, Ohio -  the 'oatmeal trust' - it represented about 85% of oatmeal output in U.S.

In 1901 Ferdinand Schumacher (American Cereal Co.), Henry Parsons Crowell (Quaker Mill Co.) and Robert Stuart (North Star Oatmeal Co.) combined their companies and named it the Quaker Oats Company with Robert Stuart as CEO.

In August 2001 the company is acquired by Pepsico.
