Our history is the foundation on which we build our future. With over 60 years of experience in delivering great tasting food, we continue to drive growth for future generations.

The McCain brothers (Wallace, Harrison, Robert and Andrew) were entrepreneurs of their time. As sons of a third-generation farmer, they used their family knowledge of agriculture and combined it with innovation.

By using frozen food technology, the brothers opened the first McCain Foods production facility in their hometown of Florenceville, New Brunswick, Canada – producing frozen French fries, which have become a signature product.

It was the start of a global journey.

Under the family’s leadership, McCain Foods quickly became established within the Canadian marketplace. This was the start of an amazing journey to become the world's largest manufacturer of frozen French fries - with one in every four fries in the world being a McCain Foods fry!

We are now a global leader.

By embracing our entrepreneurial innovative beginnings, McCain Foods has grown significantly over the years. Our products are now available in more than 160 countries. We are proud that we continue to be a global leader in prepared potato products - including our popular French fries - and appetizers.
