Trivia Question: Where was mass-produced cream cheese invented?
Upstate New York
In 1873, New York dairyman William A. Lawrence was the first to mass-produce cream cheese. A year before, Lawrence purchased a factory dedicated to making a similar type of soft, spreadable cheese called Neufchâtel, which was invented in France. By adding cream to the process, Lawrence was able to create a richer cheese that he called “cream cheese.”
