About Our Client

In 1957, the McCain brothers founded McCain in their hometown of Florenceville, New Brunswick, Canada. Pioneers of the frozen French fry industry, McCain grew rapidly into the world's largest manufacturer of frozen potato products.

Today McCain is still family owned, with a turnover of over CDN$9.1 billion, employing approximately 24,000 people and operating 53 production facilities on six continents. McCain, an international leader in the frozen food industry, produces and markets prepared potato and appetiser products across the range of retail, food service and quick service restaurant channels. The company's products can be found in restaurants and retail stores in over 160 countries around the world.

Over the past 6 years, McCain has executed a business strategy focused on top line growth, sustainable cost advantage and best in class execution. During this time, net sales have grown by more than 50 percent, generating more than 75 percent of that growth organically.

We're proud of where we've come from and are excited about where we're going. We believe people should be rewarded for generating unprecedented results and we're focused on creating a culture of performance, diversity and engagement.
