Mexico City Foods was the first company in Australia to make corn chips and tortillas using the authentic nixtamal method. In 1978, under Senor Nila the production had begun but was limited to restaurants and the few lucky Mexicans who knew the secret. Later on, in 2000, Chef Luis Sada took over the business and created Mexico City Food Products. Under Luis' guidance the nixtamal range of products expanded to include more flavours of totopos (that's chips for those who don't speak Spanish), tostadas (the real Mexican hard taco) and most of the other products. We now have a range of Mexico City foods available from our grocery department.
