Shaping the future of sustainable farming.

With our roots on the farm, we believe agriculture can, and must, be a core part of the solution for the way we grow food. We are putting sustainability at the heart of operations to help strengthen food and agricultural systems to safeguard our future.

At McCain, taking action means being smart and sustainable in the way we grow our raw agricultural ingredients and produce our products. It’s a process that starts with the soil and our commitment to regenerative agriculture.

Working directly with our 3,500 farmers, McCain continues to build farm resilience, enhance soil health and yields in the long term, drive innovation and provide technical and financial assistance to our farming partners to implement and develop regenerative agriculture practices.
