McCain: We are family

We know families come in all shapes and sizes.

We know our differences are much more than skin-deep.

We are all individual.

We celebrate everyone’s uniqueness.

We act as one team. We love everyone who we work with.

We are family.

We are McCain.

For over 60 years we’ve been the number one branded player in the frozen potato market. When it comes to bringing the nation together at mealtimes with simple, delicious, and great tasting food we’re kind of a big deal!

You won’t just find us in supermarkets though. As well as owning a household retail brand, our respected foodservice business works in close partnership with distributors, chefs and caterers across thousands of the country’s pubs, restaurants, hospitals, and schools.

Today McCain is still family owned, and has grown to 52 production facilities across six continents, employing over 20,000 employees across the world. That’s a lot of potato experts.

We are passionate about potatoes. 

But we’re even more passionate about our People!

Every single person at McCain makes a difference to our business. And we don’t take that for granted. We believe that life and work go hand-in-hand which is why we are committed to helping our people have the best life.

“Feeling included and knowing you can be yourself at work is exactly how myself, our Regional President, Howard and the GB leadership team want every colleague to feel at McCain.

We know we’re not perfect, but we’re dedicated to keeping DEI firmly on our agenda – with the aim to celebrate and include every single colleague.” – Helen Watts, HR Director

Our leaders play a huge part in creating an inclusive culture. They continue to build their knowledge, create the opportunity to challenge perception and stimulate discussions to embrace different perspectives. We are not just saying it, we are doing it!

York Pride is something we are excited to be a part of here at McCain. If you’ve seen our adverts over the years, we have paved the way for other brands, showing real relationships, and challenging the stereotypical family.  We are proud to have been awarded ‘Brand of the Year 2020’ by Outvertising, an ad industry LGBTQ+ advocacy group. Talk about trailblazing! 

We’ve also just teamed up with Baga Chipz MBE, Star of RuPaul's Drag Race UK Season One –bringing a load of ‘sauce’ to our brand, showcasing that #AnythingGoes.

Our journey continues to build a culture of inclusion and we are dedicated to being an inclusive employer of choice, where individuals can be their authentic selves. For now and for generations to come.
