On June 3, McCain Foods opened its $200 million expansion of its distribution centre (DC) in Burley, Idaho. The potato processor has been operating in the city since 1997. The 259,000 square-foot expansion is designed to meet market demands.
"There's global growth going on in the potato industry and Idaho is the ideal place to grow our business to support that,” said Dale McCarthy, vice president of Integrated Supply Chain with McCain Foods.
In addition, another 10,000 to 15,000 acres of potatoes will be required to keep the facility at capacity. More than 730 employees are now at the Burley site.
