Company Snapshot

Friends since they were six-years-old, Alejandro and Mauricio first brought “retortable pouch” technology to Mexico. In 2003 began infusing the Mexican processed tuna industry with their innovative style, one pouch at a time. As the first company to offer pouched tuna on the Mexican market, Procesa Chiapas has higher margins than its competitors in the traditionally stagnant processed tuna industry. Alejandro and Mauricio aim to solidify their brand and increase their reputation for innovation in Mexico, the world‘s second largest tuna market.

Since selection by Endeavor, the number of jobs has grown by 172%.
