McCain Foods Invests C$12m In French Fries Production Facility

McCain Foods Canada has announced plans to invest C$12 million (€8.2 million) to step up production in its French fries production line in Florenceville in New Brunswick.

The facility produces French fries for the company’s foodservice and retail business.

The project will be carried out in two phases, the frozen food giant said.

Strong And Sustainable Future

Commenting on the project, president of McCain Foods Canada, Danielle Barran, said, "McCain French fries continue to be in high demand and we are investing in a strong and sustainable future.

"Investing in Florenceville, the birthplace of McCain, where we have long-standing relationships with employees, the community and with local potato growers, always feels great."

After the expansion, the company will source potatoes from an additional 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of farmland.

In 1957, McCain Foods launched operations in Florenceville with 30 employees and registered sales of C$150,000 (€102,500) in its first year of business.

Presently, it is a global enterprise with more than 21,000 employees operating out of 53 production facilities in six continents.
