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.
“In 2019, the McCain Portage la Prairie facility will celebrate 40 years of continued operation in the local area,” said Danielle Barran, President, McCain Foods Canada.
“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.
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.
