Work resumes on processing plant


McCain Foods USA has resumed construction on a 170,000-square-foot expansion of its potato processing plant in Othello, Wash. 

The company paused construction on the facility in late May owing to COVID-19 restrictions limiting all non-essential work. It has operated at the plant for more than 30 years.

The expansion will enable the company to increase production capacity by adding a new french fry processing line.

McCain Foods is the world's largest manufacturer of frozen potato products and supplies french fries and potato specialties to retail and foodservice customers around the globe.
