Thank Thomas Jefferson for your fry habit. The average American eats about 20 to 30 pounds of fries every year, which means we have a medium-sized serving of fries approximately every three to five days.
The Belgians have us beat, though--they eat 165 pounds of fries on average. Dang!
McCain Foods is the world’s largest producer of frozen fries, those cooked in factories and then reheated in restaurants and homes. One in three fries in the world comes from McCain.
