McCain Foods (Canada) announced infrastructure investments totaling $75 million for its Portage la Prairie and Carberry, Manitoba facilities. The investments further strengthen the company’s potato processing presence in Western Canada.

Jeff DeLapp, President, North America, McCain Foods Limited:
 

“Our investments at both the Portage la Prairie and Carberry facilities are testaments to McCain’s ongoing commitment to growers, employees and the communities in which we operate in Manitoba.”

“McCain is a proudly Canadian family-owned business that values the foundational relationships shared with Manitoba growers. Together we continue to strengthen and grow our businesses in both Manitoba and Western Canada.”

From 2016 to 2019 McCain has committed a $45 million investment in the Portage la Prairie facility, including the installation of new high efficiency potato sorting system, as well as cutting edge processing and packaging equipment.

A new onsite waste water treatment, upgrades to the facility’s heating, freezing and refrigeration systems will help to improve the facility’s environmental footprint, and revamping the potato receiving area will allow multiple truck deliveries to unload efficiently at the same time.

Just over $30 million investment has been committed to the Carberry plant over the same time period, including the new installations of auto sampling equipment, a blanching system, and improved heating and refrigeration systems for the entire facility as well as other upgrades.

Jeff DeLapp:
 

“While we complete our investments in the Portage la Prairie facility, I am pleased to announce that Dale Collingridge, Production Manager at the Carberry facility and a 42-year McCain employee, has agreed, together with the support of the Portage la Prairie leadership team, to oversee the potato receiving area until the multi-million investments are completed.”
