TORONTO-McCain Foods Limited announced plans to double the operating capacity of its Harbin, China potato processing plant. The Harbin plant was built in 2005 and is one of several potato processing plants McCain operates in the Asia Pacific region.

"We have experienced strong growth throughout the
Asia Pacific region, including exceptional growth in our China business-this growth requires additional investment in local capacity to support our business and our customers," says Fred Schaeffer, regional president, APMEA (Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa), McCain.

The first stage of capacity expansion at the
Harbin plant was completed this month, with the final stage to be completed in 2013.
