The original owner of the McCain Plover Plant was H. J. Heinz - Ore-Ida Foods, who commissioned Plant 1 in 1979. In 1982 the plant underwent a major expansion with the addition of Plant 2. In 1990 the Celestial business and equipment was acquired and moved into Plant 3. This operation was expanded again and became automated two years later.
In July 1997, the Plover Plant joined McCain Foods as part of the purchase of the Ore-Ida foodservice business from H. J. Heinz Company.
The largest facility owned by McCain Foods, Plover produces products for various national chains and continues to produce and co-pack production under the Ore-Ida brand for H. J. Heinz.
Over the years McCain has implemented several energy improvement projects involving heat or electrical reduction, including boiler controls, process efficiency upgrades, efficient lighting, water reduction efforts, and environmental attributes of our energy reduction - greenhouse gas reduction/CO2 reduction. The Plover Plant also implemented an efficient motor energy management program.
The Plover Plant earned the ENERGY STAR for the first time in 2009.
