About McCain

At McCain, we believe that good ethics is good business. These principles guide who we are, what we do, and how we achieve it. The result? Consistently good food, simply made.

Our business was founded by the McCain brothers in Florenceville, Canada, 1957. They pioneered the very first frozen French fry and went on to become the world’s largest manufacturer of frozen potato products, opening over forty production facilities across six continents.

We’re committed to quality from the very start of the supply chain. As the UK’s largest purchaser of British potatoes we have close links to over 300 potato growers across the UK. Alongside our suppliers, we’re also a leading supporter of the Red Tractor Assurance Scheme. Find out more about our close relationship with growers on our Meet the Farmers page.

Over the past forty-five years, we’ve built a strong presence in the UK frozen foods industry. As well as owning a household retail brand, our respected foodservice business works in close partnership with distributors, chefs and caterers across thousands of the country’s pubs, restaurants, hospitals and schools.
