Canada: McCain honours top growers in Alberta

Uchikura Farms Ltd. of Burdett was named the 2014-2015 McCain Champion Potato Grower for the McCain Coaldale plant in Alberta at the 16th Annual McCain Growers’ Banquet held Nov. 3 at the Coast Hotel and Conference Centre. Jeff DeLapp, regional president, North America, and Allison McCain, chairman, McCain Foods Limited were on hand to extend personal congratulations to Uchikura Farms and all of the McCain growers. In his address to the group, DeLapp stressed the importance of growers to McCain and the need to work together in partnership. “We can’t be successful without each other,” DeLapp said. “So we need to think of each other’s business as we deal with challenges in the marketplace. It is only by working together that we will discover the lower cost, higher quality options that we need for the future.” Allison McCain agreed, noting it is important to focus on costs because 60 per cent of what we process here is exported to other countries. More
