It’s said the first cardboard boxes were invented in England around 1817, by Sir Malcolm Thornhill. The first boxes were made from single sheets of cardboard, and eventually became very popular when the food industry started to use them namely the Kellogg Company started using them to package cereals. Corrugated paper was invented in England in 1856 and was first used as hat liners. The first single-sided corrugated cardboard was patented in 1871 and the first precut cardboard box was invented in 1890. Corrugated boxes as we know them today were invented in 1895.
