Our food: Bring on the smiles

We seek those everyday joys that good food can bring, and make those moments last. From early morning breakfast before hockey practice, to having the guys over for the big game, to sharing your favourite 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 w​hat we do, and bring on the smiles for many years to come!

Our story: From farm to fork

McCain Brothers: Harrison and Wallace McCain c.1980s

It all began with the McCain brothers. A family-run business from day one, stemming from generations of potato farming. Back in 1957 in Florenceville, New Brunswick, we had one goal in mind – bring wholesome food to our family’s tables. And as farmers, we worked tirelessly w​ith local communities in support of environmental responsibility. Today we work with the best to ensure sustainable agriculture practices and food safety. Because good farming means a healthier environment and better food on your table.

Our people: The heart & soul of the spud

Heart Shaped Potato

So what’s our secret ingredient in making delicious foods everyone loves? Our people. What began as a humble family business in Florenceville, has grown into a global family with more than 17,000 dedicated employees. With offices from Scarborough to Johannesburg to New Delhi, we have roots in every part of the world. And while we’re proud of our food, it’s our people that are at the heart of McCain.
