We have been hearing the term cardboard since at least 1848. It was mentioned in Anne Bronte`s novel the tenant of Wildfell hall. The Kellogg brothers used paper board cartons to contain their flaked corn cereal when they started marketing their product for the first time. The boxes were wax sealed and had a printed brand name on them. American packaging industry exceled while using the fibre shipping containers particularly paper milk carton. It took a few years until the first cardboard producing machine was produced that created corrugated cardboards. In 1890 there came a huge innovation and the pieces of board were folded into boxes. By 1895 corrugated cardboards started travelling all around the world originating from America.
