The McCain company was founded by the McCain broth-ers in Canada in 1957, and its activities were based on a simple principle – good business begins with the right ethical standards. This principle remains the fundamental standard of our Corporate Policy, the slogan is ” Be Good. Do Good.”
Despite the commercial nature of the company’s work, four fundamental principles remain priority: safety, re-spect, transparency and reliability.
Today, McCain is the world’s largest pro-ducer of frozen potato products. The company operates 51 factories in 160 countries around the world.
McCain works closely with and sup-ports its agricultural partners who supply potatoes to the company’s factories, as the production of French fries begins with a potato field.
Each farmer is serviced by a sepa-rate McCain employee. Our special-ists provide full support and give rec-ommendations guided for increasing the yield and improving the quality of potatoes, as well as how to store pota-toes until late spring and early summer. Our goal together with our farmers is to get the best po-tatoes, because only the best potatoes make the best French fries in the world!
McCain partners are more than 3,500 farmers and agricul-tural companies around the world, which are an integral part of the business. We believe in long-term partnerships – in America and Europe, we have been working with some farming families for three generations. Our company is committed to supporting their daily practices, as well as looking to the future – exploring new and innovative ways of farming, working to maintain soil and conserve mois-ture, and making potato growing sustainable in terms of climate and environmental impacts.
McCain is a family business and our partners are becoming part of our agricultural family. Working with Mc-Cain, you will benefit from a direct relationship with a trusted partner who has 60 years of experience in the potato industry, as well as access to the company’s best and exclusive varieties, agronomic knowledge and support.
In the near future, McCain plans to localize its production in Russia and expand cooperation with farms and agricultural companies. In Russia Mc-Cain is presented by: the distribution de-partment of LLC “McCain Marketing (Rus)”, Agro-Department LLC “McCain Agriculture (Rus)” and LLC “McCain foods Rus”, which is implementing the project of construction of a plant in Tula region.
