Camembert from Normandy was invented by Marie Harel in 1791. For nearly a century, it was the descendants of Marie Harel who made Camembert a cheese that was increasingly sought after. This cheese takes its name from the village of Camembert, located about thirty kilometers south of Lisieux, in the department of Orne in Normandy.

In 1890, an engineer by the name of Ridel invented the famous wooden box that would allow Camembert to travel. The opening of the railroad between Normandy and Paris at the end of the 19th century opened the doors to success.
