History

In 1918, the Monroe Cheese Company in Monroe New York was responsible for the development and patenting Velveeta Cheese. Velveeta Cheese was created by a Swiss immigrant, a man named Emil Frey. As a young man and an enthusiastic employee of Monroe Cheese Company, Emil Frey was determined not to waste the whey that was left over after the company had made all of their other cheese products.

Generally, whey was considered waste and was discarded after the cheese was made. Emil Frey decided to mix an already existing cheese with the whey left over and the result was Velveeta Cheese, a smoother, creamier cheese product. IN the year 1927, after turbulence in the cheese market industry for ownership of the Velveeta Cheese recipe and brand, Kraft Foods purchased the Velveeta Cheese Company. In the 1930's Kraft's Velveeta Cheese earned a reputation for benefitting health and was approved by the American Medical Association.

Emil Frey was born in 1867 in Switzerland. His father was a cheese maker and Emil traveled with him to the United States. Upon arrival, Frey worked at the Neuesswanders Cheese Factory in Booming Grove in 1887 and the Tode and Wolfe Cheese Factory in 1888. In 1889, Emil Frey was an employee at the Monroe Cheese Factory. Emil Frey was attempting to make Bismarck cheese when he accidentally found the Velveeta Cheese recipe. Emil Frey worked on other cheeses, such as the Liederkranz cheese until he retired in 1938. He died on January 11, 1951.
