Generally because of its name, one thinks that the petit-suisse was created in Switzerland. In fact, it was born in Normandy, but its father came from Switzerland. In the 1850's, a Swiss employee in a dairy of Auvilliers (near Beauvais) suggested to the owner of the dairy, to add cream to the pastry used to produce bonbons.
Charles Gervais, whose society was well-known for its double cremes, saw immediately the interest of that product and made the petit suisse one of the most important product of its society. It also created a really efficient distribution system, especially to deliver quickly its products to Paris, first by using horse drawn vehicle and later by trucks. The "petit-suisse" also benefits of the know-how of the Pommel society, the Gervais society rival and neighbor at the beginning of the 20th century.
At the start the "petit suisses" were sold wrapped in a thin band of paper and placed six by six in a small wood crate.
