Management at McCain Foods and invited guests officially broke ground Monday, Oct. 3 to mark the start of construction on the major expansion to its French fry plant in Florenceville-Bristol as announced in June.

The 32,000 square foot expansion housing a new production line with state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and technology will allow the company to meet the growing demands for hash browns and other specialty potato products with their retail and foodservice customers across North America.

The company expects the new line to begin production in August 2017.
