Hola Amores,

We’re asking our big, beautiful network and community for help so that we can continue to bring authentic Mexican food to Canada. With your support, we will soon be able to produce the first organic corn tortilla packaged in a compostable plant-based bag (not a plastic one!) available at the grocery store.

We need your help to install our tortilla machine and production line. After making it through the immensely challenging landscape of the pandemic, we are running on fumes financially at a time when it is critical for us to scale our business so that we can continue to do what we love here in our community.

Last year, we successfully imported a tortilla machine from Tlaxcala, Mexico, that will help us go from producing 400 tortillas per day to 500 per hour - but we haven’t been able to come up with the funds ourselves to install the machine and our production line. We have exhausted our resources after the long haul of the pandemic, and as our business was founded during it, very little government support was available to us.

This machine is the key to our business being viable and integral to jump-starting our journey as food producers keen on changing the Mexican food aisle at the grocery store for the better.

We’re asking our community for help because we know that our community would want us to ask when we need support. We know that so many of us have experienced hardship during the pandemic, and we are really grateful to have made it this far and to have this opportunity. Thank you for helping us get here and being there for us!

Every action helps: we hope you will consider coming by for a meal, spreading the word about the Tortilleria, or donating to the campaign.
