The biscuit boy and cracker-barrel logo was created by the Biscuit & Crackers Manufacturing Association’s, which was formed in 1901.
On November 11, 1901, the Biscuit & Cracker Manufacturers’ Association (B&CMA) was established in Cincinnati, during the era of the nostalgic cracker barrel. The time was aptly characterized by B&CMA’s “Biscuit Boy” logo and trademark.
The B&CMA merged with American Bakers Association in 2017 but prior to that was an international trade organization that represented the entire scope of companies involved in the manufacturing of biscuits and crackers as well as suppliers to the baking industry. The B&CMA’s mission was to bring unparalleled educational training programs and networking opportunities to its members.
Over the year’s B&CMA had a lot of fun working the biscuit boy logo into many marketing items including conference covers, educational programs, publications, and more. Let’s take a look at the good old Biscuit Boy over the years.
