Did Henry Ford invent Kingsford charcoal?
Just so, did Henry Ford invent charcoal?
History of charcoal In the 1920s, Henry Ford developed a process for using wood scraps from his Model T's, which were in fact made of wood, to popularize briquettes (spelled briquet on the Kingsford bags). Briquettes, however, were first patented by Ellsworth B.A. Zwoyer in 1897.
Additionally, does Ford still own Kingsford? An investment group bought Ford Charcoal in 1951 and renamed it to Kingsford Charcoal in honor of Edward G. Kingsford (and the factory's home-base name) and took over the operations. The plant was later acquired by Clorox in 1973.
