The McCain Foods USA Burley Plant is located in Burley, Idaho, which is the county seat for Cassia County and sits on the Snake River Plain in southeast Idaho.  The facility produces frozen potato products, including coated, skin on and speciality fries and hash browns for many regional specialty chains.


Originally known as the Idaho Potato Processors, Inc. (IPPI), the plant was operational in the early 1960s.  In 1964 IPPI was sold to Ore-Ida Foods, Inc.  In July 1997 the Burley plant joined McCain Foods as part of the purchase of the Ore-Ida foodservice business from H. J. Heinz Company.


Today, the plant employs more than 600 full-time employees.


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 Burley Plant also implemented an efficient motor energy management program.

The Burley Plant earned the ENERGY STAR for the first time in 2009.
