Picking the
perfect variety

We use varieties such as Pentland Dell, Russet Burbank, Ivory Russet, Innovator and Shepody potatoes which all make our world-famous crispy fries. And as they’re bigger spuds, it means the fries we cut from them are long enough for you to nibble and dip.

How are our delicious fries made?

We simply wash, peel, cut and prepare the potatoes before cooking. We cook them in a blend of sunflower and rapeseed oil, adding a pinch of salt before serving.


Our commitment to agriculture

But delicious fries are much more than just great potatoes, it’s our British and Irish farmers that really make them special. That’s why we’ve introduced the Sustainable MacFries Fund, together with McCain, to provide grants for British potato farmers who grow the varieties that make our world-famous fries, and invest in soil and water sustainability.
