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.
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 frozen fries in the world being a McCain Foods fry!
