The brand name 'Quaker Oats' was registered as a trade mark in the United States in 1877. The figure of a man in traditional Quaker clothing was used to represent good quality and honest value. Significantly, Quaker Oats was the first brand to feature a recipe on its boxes; it was for oatmeal bread.
