The journey for our yummy snacks begins in the world’s 2nd largest potato-producing country - India.
Our farmers source high-quality seeds, which are sown evenly with the help of the right balance of sun and water.
Agronomists from McCain work with our farming partners to ensure that the crops are cultivated to their full potential.
When potatoes are fully ripe, our farming partners harvest them. Later potatoes are sorted, graded, and stored safely for transit.
Once the potatoes arrive at the McCain factory, they are size graded, steam peeled, cut and immediately blanched in water.
The cut potatoes are dried, power fried, and then frozen immediately.
The potatoes are then skillfully cooked, sliced into shapes, and frozen immediately.
The entire process from sourcing potatoes to getting them consumption ready happens in India.
