McCain Foodservice has carved out a strong reputation for the quality of our French fries, which were first sold in Australia in 1968 from imported stock.


Local production commenced within the next two years, with McCain processing Australian grown potatoes at a rate of 20,000 tonnes a year at a time when the French fry market was still in its infancy. By 1975, our plant in Ballarat, Victoria was processing 48,000 tonnes of potatoes – approximately 660 standard cup serves of fries per minute. Production was later expanded through acquisitions and development to include plants elsewhere in Victoria and in Tasmania and South Australia.
McCain entered the New Zealand market in 1985, initially importing product from Australia. We now produce locally in Timaru and Hastings.

Renowned for our French fries, McCain Foodservice is also a trusted supplier of frozen vegetables, pizzas and dinners, desserts and potato specialty products across Australia and New Zealand.
