The Aerated Bread Company Ltd (Aërated Bread Company or A.B.C.) was founded in the United Kingdom (U.K.) in 1862 by Dr. John Dauglish. Its aim was to mass produce healthy, additive-free breads using a new bread leavening technology invented by the company's founder. Dauglish's system was a yeast-free, carbonic acid gas (i.e., carbon dioxide) method of bread making: "Nothing but flour, water, a little salt and gas—no sweat! It was liked by many." In addition to the bakery, the company was especially well known for its many tea shops that operated from 1864.The Aerated Bread Company Ltd was founded in 1862 by Dr. John Dauglish (1824–1866),an "ingenious and earnest sanitarian as well as social reformer". The business was created as an incorporated company listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Creation as a corporation was part of the then growing mid to late 19th-century trend in Britain to satisfy the "English demand for their industrial concerns to be incorporated under their Individual Liability act", which was in stark contrast to the far smaller rate of incorporation in the United States and listings on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
