Beginning in the New Year, McCain Foods (Canada) will celebrate 40 years of sustained operation and investment in Manitoba together with employees, growers and neighbours in the local communities where it operates: Carberry and Portage la Prairie.

Danielle Barran, President, McCain Foods Canada:

“In 2019, the McCain Portage la Prairie facility will celebrate 40 years of continued operation in the local area.”

“Our 40-year presence in the community is a strong testament to the importance McCain holds on the people that live and work here, adding continued economic activity and stimulus to the region.”
From the start, the McCain brothers had a simple belief: Good ethics is good business. It still guides the family company today. Giving back to the rural communities where McCain operates, and where employees and growers live, is an important core value of the company.

Whether it is providing funding for community revitalization programs, grassroots support for community events and sports team sponsorships or supporting education through scholarships and STEM programs for students, the company’s community commitments in Manitoba are longstanding.

Danielle Barran:

“Most recently, The McCain Foundation committed $50,000 towards the funding of a new interactive water fountain for families to enjoy at a park in the Portage la Prairie community.”

“We are also proud to announce a $25,000 donation to Carberry Collegiate and the Carberry Community Development for the creation of a new exterior digital sign that will help keep residents informed, engaged and involved in activities and events in the community.”

Helping to build sustainable futures for McCain employees and growers

In addition to offering significant quantities of donated food at Manitoba community events and local food banks, McCain helps local community kids get a strong start to the day with nutritious meals served at four Carberry and four Portage la Prairie schools by providing financial support.

Started initially as a pilot in New Brunswick, this program is now in place in communities across the country where McCain has potato production facilities, delivered in partnership with President’s Choice Children’s Charity.

For the past 23 years, Manitoba-based McCain employees have raised more than $1.84 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the Clear Lake annual golf tournament. McCain in Manitoba also proudly supports the Winnipeg RMHC Home for Dinner program and the McHappy Day Westman Dreams for Kids events.

A McCain donation also helped to fund the construction of the Assiniboine Community College greenhouse, which researches food systems for northern climates and provides an educational vehicle for local agriculture and horticulture students.

Today, more than 550 employees work at the two facilities in Manitoba and are part of a proudly Canadian-based company with a global enterprise, including more than 21,000 employees operating out of 52 production facilities on six continents with sales in excess of CDN $9.5 billion.
