BETTY CROCKER: Since 1921, the Betty Crocker name has symbolized the General Mills continuing tradition of service to consumers. Although Betty was never a real person, her name and identity have become synonymous with helpfulness, trustworthiness and quality. In 1945, at the request of U.S. Office of War Information, Betty Crocker broadcast on NVC radio a program called “Our Nation’s Rations” to help homemakers make the most of rationed foods. Seven million copies of Betty Crocker wartime booklet, Your Share, were distributed. Another publication, Thru Highway to Good Nutrition, won national recognition by the American Red Cross for outstanding service in the national interest.

Betty Crocker has survived the decades by providing consumers with food information and food products that are contemporary without being faddish. The first hardcover cookbook, Betty Crocker’s Picture Cookbook was published in 1950 and quickly became a national best seller.
