We choose premium white corn, steep it slowly over half a day for maximum flavor and function and stone grind it in the traditional manner of our ancestors. Our unique process yields a superior corn tortilla with a full-bodied, true corn flavor and authentic texture (not refined). We are one of the few manufacturers in the world who maintain this stone ground tradition.
We are one of the few companies in our industry who have SQF Certification, the premier certifying body in the world. We take great pride in the fact that our comprehensive food safety program has received accolades by third party auditors who audit thousands of companies world-wide. Superior food safety and premium quality are our passion and our promise.
