McCain Foods delays US potato plant project

According to a report by Pan Demetrakakes, Senior Editor at Food Processing, McCain Foods is delaying the expansion of its potato processing facility in Othello, Wash., due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Demetrakakes says the project at the facility, about 100 miles southwest of Spokane, would have added another 170,000 square feet to the plant for a new processing line for battered and conventional French fries.

Due for completion early next year, it was budgeted at $300 million, making it third by cost on Food Processing’s list of food company capital projects.

The pandemic has created a backlog in supplies of frozen French fries, since the restaurants that serve much of them have been shut down or drastically reduced in volume.
