About Us

In 1957, the Canadian McCain brothers - Wallace, Harrison, Robert and Andrew, started a family business. As sons of a third-generation farmer, they used their family knowledge of agriculture and combined it with innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Their goal was simple: to create wholesome food for families. Food the brothers wanted to serve at their own tables. Food Canadians could trust, so families like theirs could spend less time cooking and more time together. Families look different today than in 1957, in all their incredible and growing diversity. But McCain’s purpose remains the same today as it did when they started: to create real food for real life. Food that is convenient, wholesome, simple and delicious.

Our farmers – some of whom we’ve worked with for generations - have been an integral part of our business. We share their’ passion for growing the best potatoes in the world with love and care for the land, along with a renewed commitment to sustainable agriculture and manufacturing practices. We still ground our work in being real and building trust: caring about our customers, our people, and our farmers. Today we’re a proudly Canadian leader, and the hometown of our founders—Florenceville, New Brunswick. At the end of the day, we’re still a family business in the business of bringing families together.”
