McCain Foods, based in New Brunswick, Canada, has been around for more than 60 years and is known for making one-third of the world’s frozen French fries. And Florenceville-Bristol, a small town in the province, has become the “capital” of French fries in the world, and there is no doubt that the Potato World Museum is located here.
McCain & Company operates in more than 160 countries and has 51 manufacturing facilities. McCain’s China operations are headquartered in Shanghai, with existing production facilities in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, in northeastern China. McCain & Company offers a wide variety of frozen fries, potato specialties and appetizers primarily to retail and foodservice channels. So how are McCain’s flagship frozen fries made? Let me find out with you.
A brief overview of the main processes of the frozen French fries production line adopted by McCain is as follows:
1. Raw Potato Material Preset
In order to prolong the processing cycle, potatoes must be stored for a long time. After long-term storage of potatoes, sugar and nutrients will have certain changes. Therefore, a certain period of recovery treatment must be carried out before processing to make the potato ingredients meet the processing requirements.
2. De-Silt And Clean The Potatoes
The potato brush cleaning equipment is mainly used to remove the surface sediment and foreign matter on the potatoes.
3. Peel And Separate The Potatoes
The main method is to use peeling equipment to remove the potato skin. Our company also provides equipment for cleaning and peeling potatoes. Suitable for small-volume fries processing business.
4. Potato Picking And Trimming
Peeled potatoes were manually trimmed to remove unremoved skins, eye shoots, irregularities and greening.
5. Potato Slices
According to different specifications, the potato is cut into square strips by a French fries machine, and the strips are required to be neat and straight. Our potato slicer can cut potatoes into french fries of different sizes to meet the different requirements of customers for the size of french fries and to meet the differentiated needs of customers. And more,our potato slice cutting machine also can cut wave shape potato french fries.
6. Dessert Fries
The use of flat roller brush equipment can separate the short strips and debris generated during the processing of french fries to improve the yield. This is very helpful for the quality of the finished fries. French fries with uniform quality and consistent style and size are more popular with customers. Can sell for a better price.
7. French Fries Drying Equipment
The air knife-type French fries drying equipment can remove the moisture on the surface of the french fries and prepare for the next french fries frying process.
8. French Fries Frying
Use continuous frying equipment to fry the french fries in hot oil for a short period of time and remove them, and use degreasing equipment to filter out excess oil to fry the french fries with their unique fragrant aroma.
9. Frozen Fries
The fried french fries are pre-cooled and then sent to the quick-freezing equipment for deep-freezing and quick-freezing, so that the crystals in the fries are uniform, which is convenient for long-term preservation and storage and maintains the original flavor.
10. Packaging, Refrigeration
Use automatic equipment for bagging and packaging. The packaging process should be as short as possible to prevent the quick-frozen fries from absorbing moisture and thawing, which would affect the quality of the product. Refrigerate immediately after packaging.
