No.1 Authentic Mexican Tortilla Company By Mission Foods, USA

by JGE Team

Humble Beginning

MISSION believes that good food can take people places. From its humble beginnings as a small tortilla factory in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles to a global brand known around the world, Mission always strived to help people to explore the endless possibilities for tortillas and tortilla chips.

GRUMA was founded in Cerralvo, Nuevo León, Mexico with the goal of providing Mexicans with easy access to their main dietary staple, the tortilla in 1949. It acquired the old MISSION tortilla factory located in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles in 1977. In 1989, MISSION continues to evolve to meet growing demand, acquiring additional brands and 10 plants in the U.S. MISSION successfully launches Carb Balance in 2004 and begins expanding its Better-For-You line of products based on the premise of offering healthier options without compromising on flavor. Old General Motors plant in Panorama City, CA was transformed by MISSION into a LEED Gold certified tortilla plant that can prevent more than 1,300 metric tons of carbon emissions annually in 2010. MISSION opens its new, state of the art, plant in Dallas, TX in 2018 with the capacity to produce 30 million tortillas daily.
