Our Story of Bringing Bold Flavors to Life

Since our founding by father Louis and son Fred in 1964, our commitment and passion for making high-quality, delicious choices has been the cornerstone of who we are. Over the years, we’ve developed products and flavors that are loved and trusted by consumers. It’s taken decades of perseverance and lots of hard-working folks to deliver consumer-loved brands like El Monterey®, America’s #1 brand of frozen Mexican food*.

We’re proud to offer prepared food solutions that satisfy consumers and provide simple prep for your operation. With our innovative, Mexican-inspired creations, your consumers have something to look forward to — no matter where they are in their day.

Mexican food reigns as the leading ethnic cuisine in America, and we continually strive to be your partner in delivering the bold flavors consumers love as well as the foodservice insights that help build a profitable future.
