McCain Foods of Canada has announced that Perry Produce Ltd. is the 2018 Crop Year Champion Potato Grower for Alberta, at the annual McCain Alberta Growersâ€™ Appreciation Banquet held last month in Canada’s Alberta province.
Perry Produce Ltd. has been one of the top potato producers for Alberta for a number of years, supplying the Coaldale potato processing facility with thousands of potatoes. The annual tradition was made even more special as the Coaldale potato processing facility enters its 20th anniversary in 2020.
â€œWe have been partners with our Alberta growers for 20 years and we are very pleased to recognize Perry Produce Ltd. and our other valued 2018 top growers for their continued commitment and extraordinary efforts supplying our McCain Foods Coaldale facility,â€ says Christine Wentworth, McCain Foods Vice-President of Agriculture.
â€œAt McCain Foods, we believe the grower relationship is an extension of our business and we have tremendous respect for your efforts during the 2018 crop season.â€
Being a top-10 finalist nine times, this was the first year Perry Produce achieved the Champion Grower award.
