How does McCain view sustainability?

Sustainability is at the heart of our purpose at McCain. Producing delicious, planet-friendly products means growing food responsibly, reducing our carbon footprint, supporting the communities where we operate and ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.

Good Food

Making great food better - Our overall approach to food production is straightforward and transparent. We use simple ingredients, with simple preparation and production methods.
