La Tortilla Factory


La Tortilla Factory

La Tortilla Factory was founded by Jose and Mary Tamayo in 1977. It was the first taqueria in Sonoma County, Santa Rosa, California. They called themselves “Mexicattessen”.

In the beginning, Jose and Mary Tamayo sold Mexican spices, chilies, sauces, and fresh corn tortillas that they baked every day.

In 1988 Jose and Mary Tamayo closed Mexicattessen to focus exclusively on Tortilla production.

In 1990 created the world’s first fat-free tortilla.

In 1992 made their first whole wheat fat free tortilla, which quickly was popular because of its healthy properties and low carb count.

In 2001 removed all hydrogenated oils, trans fats and high fructose corn syrup from its products.

In 2003 introduced its first organic corn tortilla, and its factory was certified by Quality Assurance International (QAI).

In 2006 created the world’s first Gluten-Free tortilla, made with a special blend of teff and millet grains. Its facilities were certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).

In 2008 introduced its Hand Made Style tortillas, crafted with a unique blend of corn and wheat flours.

In 2015 launched a new line of Organic, Non-GMO Project Certified tortillas. It was the first to market a complete line of tortillas that are both organic and Non-GMO Project certified.

In 2016 launched 3 new Non-GMO Project verified lines, including the world’s first Non-GMO Low Carb Tortilla.

In 2017 celebrated 40 years in business, launching a new line of authentic, easy-to-use Mexican Sauce Starters and the world’s first 50/50 Corn + Flour Crisps.
