McCain Foods Making Expansion Plans


By Jay Michaels

Burley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The proposed expansion at McCain Foods in Burley is one step closer to becoming a reality.

The new line would double McCain’s production of French fries and other potato products.

The project would establish a new 'revenue allocation area,’ and they're putting the finishing touches on the incentive package for McCain’s.

“State of the art, we're really excited about it. I think we anticipate 100 employees will be new to that line, good benefits, really good salary for them. So it's a great community asset,” says Doug Manning, Burley economic development director.

Manning explains the new expansion will be very technical and feature a large amount of robotics.

If all the necessary details are hammered out, construction could begin sometime next spring.
