McCain Acquires Scelta, a Netherlands-Based Frozen Food Producer

On September 8th, 2022, McCain Foods acquired Scelta Products, a Netherlands-based producer of frozen prepared vegetable appetizers such as onion rings and battered and breaded mushrooms.

“With common customers and shared values as family-owned companies, there is a natural complement between McCain Foods and Scelta Products,” says Max Koeune, President & CEO of McCain Foods. “We feel honoured and privileged to build on the legacy of Scelta Products, bringing their delicious product to our customers as we expand on the fantastic business that Scelta’s founders have created.”


Scelta’s plant products will be added to McCain’s offerings, creating increased production capacity and the opportunity for European and international growth.

The significant acquisition is the latest in a series of investments McCain has made in an effort to expand their appetizer and snack offerings, including Ad van Geloven, Strong Roots, and Forno De Minas. The move communicates McCain’s commitment to strengthen its position in the global market.
