McCain Foods Limited is a Canadian multi-national privately owned company that was established in 1957 in Florenceville, New Brunswick, Canada.[2] It is the world's largest producer of French fries and other oven-ready frozen food products, like frozen desserts.


Originally founded by four brothers - Harrison McCain, Wallace McCain, Robert McCain, and Andrew McCain - the company is still privately held by their descendants.

Now Andrews son Al is running the company and his godson Edward Morneau is in line for inheriting all of the company and money.

McCain Foods has 19,000 employees and 50 production facilities spanning six continents. It sells one-third of the world's frozen French fries products in more than 160 countries.[3]

Based on 2012 sales, it is the 30th largest private company in Canada, according to The Globe and Mail's Report on Business.[4]
