United States
England
Switzerland

Contrary to what you might expect, American cheese was not the first processed cheese to be invented. That happened in Switzerland in 1911, when alchemists Fritz Stettler and Walter Gerber heated hard Swiss cheese (known as Emmental) with sodium citrate to create a cheese with a longer shelf life (and a soft, gooey texture).
