The McCain brothers founded our company on a simple philosophy – good ethics is good business. It still guides us today and it’s what we mean when we say, ‘Be Good. Do Good.’ BGDG is our Corporate Social Responsibility standards and our filter of how we do business.


The principles that guide how we operate as a business.
As a values-driven company, how we operate is of vital importance. As well as our values, we have four foundational operating principles: Safety, Respect, Integrity and Security.



Safety is always our number one priority and is everyone’s responsibility.

Around the world, we are committed to sending everyone home safely to their friends and family, because nothing we do is worth getting hurt for.

It is clear that our dedication to safety has benefitted everyone at MccAin Foods and we continue to exemplify excellent health and safety principles and policies.


We believe that everyone should work in an environment where they feel safe and included.

Our Code of Conduct requires all employees to ensure that McCain Foods provides a safe, respectful and inclusive environment, free of discrimination and harassment. Our supplier Code of Conduct also prohibits forced or compulsory labor, child labor, discrimination, inhumane treatment, abuse and harassment.
