Multinational food manufacturer McCain Foods plans to invest in a capacity upgrade at its Coaldale, AB French fry production plant as a result of increased demand, a company press release announced July 20.

The company said the investment is part of an on-going effort over the last 18 months to invest more than $1 billion in capacity upgrades for McCain’s plants in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Belgium, Argentina, Columbia, and India.

“We’re actively evaluating new opportunities to invest in our network as our global volumes increase,” said Dirk Van de Put, president and chief executive officer of McCain Foods Limited in the release. “Over the last 18 months, we’ve confirmed investments of more than $1 billion to add capacity, including investments in infrastructure, technology, and capabilities, across the full range of McCain products.”

Slated for completion in the fall of 2017, the Coaldale plant serves customers across North America and employs more than 200 workers.
