Processing

Prince Edward Island potato growers are fortunate to have two world-class French fry processors with processing plants located in the region: Cavendish Farms in New Annan, PEI and McCain Foods in Florenceville, NB. These two processors negotiate contracts with Island growers through the Processing Committee of the PEI Potato Board and handle the most of the Island’s volume of processing potatoes.

There are also producers who grow chip varieties that are destined for potato chip production with Frito-Lay.  Additionally, a dehydration plant, owned by AgraWest Ltd, is located in Souris, PEI and produces potato granules for use in a variety of food products.
