Pigs in Ponchos (tortilla wrap franks)

Today, the company we know as Mission Foods had its beginnings in 1949, Don Roberto Gonzalez and his father formed the company GRUMA S.A. in Monterrey, Mexico, and revolutionized the corn flour and tortilla industries.

Prior to that time, corn flour and corn masa, was produced in the same labor intensive way originated by the Aztecs hundreds of years earlier. Don Roberto Gonzalez envisioned a better way and replaced the old Nixtamal stone grinding process with a radically more efficient hammer milling process. This new process resulted in a superior corn flour, Maseca corn flour with a more controllable, more uniform particle size. It also resulted in higher yield with less labor and waste than the old fashioned method. Most importantly, it produced superior quality tortillas.

Today, GRUMA S.A. is the world's largest producer of Maseca corn flour and tortilla products, with production facilities across the Americas, UK, Australia, Holland, Italy and Asia. Its operations and sales extend to the US, Canada, throughout Central America,through Gruma Centro America, and into England, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. With the backing of Gruma's global technology and resources, Mission Foods has grown to become the largest producer of tortilla products in the US.
