McCain Foods, a manufacturer of frozen potato products, prepared appetizers and snacks, has announced the expansion of its Innovation Hub farms in North America, adding four new farms across three different regions. This initiative is part of McCain’s broader strategy to implement regenerative agriculture practices across its global potato fields by 2030.

The company has a worldwide production, retail and corporate operations footprint. Its new hubs will be located on potato farms in Alberta, Wisconsin and Maine, with an additional hub on an onion farm in Idaho. These hubs join existing ones in Idaho, Washington and Manitoba and will further the company’s research into sustainable farming practices.

The Innovation Hubs are designed to conduct commercial-scale research trials that are specific to the local growing conditions. This approach allows McCain to test and refine sustainable agricultural practices, such as cover cropping, crop diversity and advanced irrigation techniques.  McCain is committed to improving soil health, ensuring strong crop yields and supporting the economic viability of farms while addressing environmental challenges.
