"Nobody, least of all the McCain brothers, imagined that the little frozen foods plant they opened in 1957 would, before the century was over, make Florenceville into the French fry capital of the world. Wallace and Harrison McCain worked hard and played hard and turned their family's name into the most famous Canadian brand in the world. Because they knew people were their most important asset, they hired and trained enthusiastic, independent thinkers to help them build McCain Foods into a global powerhouse in the frozen food industry. In doing so, they benefited not just themselves but thousands of employees all over the world as well as the millions of consumers who enjoy the convenience and nutritional benefits of McCain products. It's an amazing Canadian success story. How did they do it? That's what this book is about."
