Colorado Corn met and toured Mission Foods in Pueblo on Thursday, to identify if there were ways to partner with the Company, considering their use of corn.
This Mission Foods plant is one of 19 facilities throughout the United States and is considered to be mid-size; producing retail/table corn, food service and fried chips. These are not the ONLY three products this plant produces, but rather the three main categories.
They also produce many specialty products that fall within these three categories. Many amazing and interesting facts were obtained, including the fact that this plant brings 260-270 jobs to Pueblo.
We were also able to watch food service (restaurant) red enchiladas being produced as well as tortilla chips, enchilada shells and assorted kinds of tortillas.
It was truly amazing to watch this process and the thousands of products produced every hour. Not to mention the amazing taste of the freshest chips and tortillas we’ve ever tasted.
Turns out this plant buys all their corn already as ground corn flour from Azteca Milling, who we plan to get in touch with next.
