It's all good

Chip perfection

At McCain, we want to make the most perfect chips. And we think the best way to do that is to use the same methods you'd use when cooking in your kitchen, while using the same wholesome ingredients that you'd have in your store cupboard.

We believe that healthiness is key, so to keep fat levels as low as possible, without compromising on taste, we cook our potatoes using sunflower oil, and avoid using artificial colours or flavours at all costs.

Plus, from washing and peeling through to cooking and freezing, we prepare our chips and potatoes in less than 90 minutes, which guarantees freshness and sealed in nutrients.

McCain's roots

SunflowerMcCain is a family business which likes to stay hands-on at every stage of the farming process, so we can be sure that only the best potatoes are used in our products. 

We take great pride in cultivating our own potato seedlings, which, when mature, we send to our dedicated growers – there are more than 250 of them in McCain's extended family. We've chosen each farm we work with for the quality of their potato crop, and are proud to say that, in many cases, we have worked with three generations of the same farming family.

And to make sure that only the best potatoes reach your freezer, all year round the McCain team of potato experts works closely with our farmers.
