Kavli is a Norwegian brand of soft cheese, caviar, mayonnaise and crackers. The company sells products in 30 countries, with plants in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, England and Scotland.[1][2]

In 1914, Olav Kavli founded Kavli Holding A/S. In 1924, Olav Kavli invented a way to produce long-lasting soft cheese and launched the Primula brand. Later the corporation introduced new related products. In 1962, the ownership of the company was transferred to the Kavli Trust which is headquartered at Nesttun outside Bergen, Norway. [3] [4][5]
