Mission began in the spirit of innovation when Don Roberto Gonzalez and his father formed GRUMA S.A. in Monterrey, Mexico in 1949. Their new, more efficient hammer-milling process replaced the centuries-old stone-grinding method, revolutionizing the corn flour and tortilla industries. The result was, and still is, exceptional tasting tortillas, higher yield, and less labor and waste.
Employing the most advanced production technologies, GRUMA S.A. operates facilities in the U.S.A., Europe, Mexico, Central America, Asia and Oceania, exporting products to over 70 countries worldwide. With the backing of Gruma’s global technology and resources, high standards and continued innovation, Mission Foods is the largest producer of tortilla products in the U.S. and passionate about always improving to provide menu solutions that go beyond quality tortillas and invite you to discover so much more.
