Officials with McCain Foods Ltd. have been talking to the P.E.I. government about training dollars for employees during an upcoming shutdown of their Borden-Carleton plant.
Allan Campbell, the minister of innovation, said the frozen food and potato processing giant is looking for an arrangement with the government that is similar to the one P.E.I. worked out with Cavendish Farms.
"I guess McCain is in a very similar situation as Cavendish Farms. They are experiencing a slowdown because of the downturn in the economy and they are planning a shutdown."
McCain Foods Ltd. said its Borden-Carleton plant will be shuttered from Dec. 23 to Jan. 4.
