At the end of the 1960s, the Fromageries Bel, who created four decades earlier the brand of processed cheese The Laughing Cow, planned to create the first cheese specially dedicated to children.

The first Kiri portion was created in Sablé-sur-Sarthe in 1966 in the department of Sarthe, after several years of research.[1]

During the 1980s, the cheese brand exported itself, first in Europe, and later in Japan. Kiri also became an essential ingredient of pastry in the Middle East.

Since the 1990s, the Fromageries Bel launched a new Kiri product named Kiri Dippi, consisting of a little tray with bread sticks to dunk in a portion of cheese.

In 2015, Kiri made a growth of 11%.[2]
