About Us

Our food: Bring on the smiles

We seek those everyday joys that good food can bring, and make this moments last. From early morning breakfast before hockey practice, to having the guys over for the big game, to sharing your favorite snacks on movie night. We believe some of the warmest of joys are shared over food everyone loves. For almost 60 years we’ve been making food that brings smiles to the table, like French fries, pizza and desserts. We believe good food starts with simple, wholesome ingredients and we are excited to keep doing what we do, and bring on the smiles for many years to come!



McCain Foods Limited was founded in 1957 by brothers, Harrison and Wallace McCain, with the production facility opening in their hometown of Florenceville, New Brunswick, Canada.



Since its humble beginnings, McCain Foods has become one of the world’s largest manufacturers of frozen French fries and potato specialties. The business has grown significantly over the years, from 30 employees and global sales of CDN$150,000, to now employing more than 19,000 people with global sales of CDN$8 billion.

We operate across six continents with 45 sites, working with 3,200 farmers and use over 6.5 million tons of potatoes every year. McCain products can be found in thousands of restaurants and supermarket freezers in more than 160 countries.

In addition to fries, McCain also produces other foods, including snacks, meals and vegetables for both the retail and foodservice industries.

One in every three French fries in the world is a McCain fry
