Good Food. Simply Made

With our roots in rural farming communities, McCain Foods has a deep affinity with farmers.

The global agricultural system is under pressure. As the world’s population increases, so does the demand for food. In fact the world’s population is projected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050*, with major implications for resource consumption and food production. Therefore, agricultural yields must increase. Yet farmers are facing multiple challenges including unpredictable climatic conditions, soil degradation, water scarcity and competing land uses.
Smart and sustainable farming is a core aspect of our commitments. Our aim is to help our farming partners increase yields while reducing their environmental impacts. We do this by leveraging our agricultural expertise and long-term partnerships, and enabling farmers to adopt new crops, techniques and rapidly evolving technologies. We also carefully monitor and manage water usage in arid areas as this will be critical for sustainable food systems in the future.
