CATALOGUE 2015 Importers & Distributors of the Finest Mexican Food & Beverage to the trade


About Us MexImport was launched by entrepreneur Katya Torres de la Rocha. After 12 successful years in the food industry setting up restaurants and online grocery store MexGrocer.co.uk, Katya decided it was time to create a new type of business in order to supply the trade fine Mexican ingredients and beverages. Katya is supported by a team of individuals who share her passion and vision and aim to provide the best customer service and create long term commercial relationships. Francisco Yong is the former CEO, EMEA of Gruma, the world’s leading branded tortilla and corn flour producer. Francisco handles major MexImport accounts such as supermarkets, fast food and coffee shop chains. Eduardo Gomez Resendiz founded the Tequila and Mezcal Fest, the UK’s only festival for agave spirits. Through the event, he has introduced many fine tequilas and mezcal to the UK for the first time. He has worked in the drinks industry in the UK for over 10 years. Mexican food has been misunderstood in the past. It is about much more than nachos and fajitas. Our cuisine goes back thousands of years when the Aztecs ground corn to make tortillas, fermented the agave plant for tequila and created rich, complex sauces, dips and salsas to accompany dishes. There is a growing interest in authentic Mexican cuisine and our vision is to bring some of these wonderful products to the European marketplace for food lovers to enjoy. Food is an important part of Mexican culture and at MexImport we’re committed to sourcing the best fine food.

The tortilla, made with variants of white, yellow and blue corn, has been a staple food item in Mexico since pre-Columbian times. The dough is made by soaking maize in limewater; called nixtamalization, it causes the skin of the corn kernels to peel off Then grinding and cooking it, kneading it into a dough called masa, creates a tortilla.

Importers & Distributors

Corn tortillas are the basis of many traditional Mexican dishes, such as tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, flautas, quesadillas, chilaquiles, and tortilla soup. Warmed corn tortillas are also often served as an accompaniment to stews, soups, grilled meats and other dishes, as bread might be served in other cuisines. We invite you to enjoy the traditional taste of corn tortillas made in the colonial region of Guanajuato, Mexico.

Oven-baked, gluten free tostadas, nachos and snacks Tostadas and nachos are tradition in Mexico; just add your favourite toppings and you have a complete meal. All Susalia products are baked and not fried, made with nixtamal corn and gluten free. Delicious and guilt-free.

There are over 150 species of maguey exclusive to Mexican territory. Of these species more than 30 can be utilized to make mezcal, Oaxaca being the state with the highest concentration and variety of them. In Oaxaca, it is common to mix together crops of corn, squash, beans and maguey, as this

Glossary Chiles & Salsas Chilli peppers were domesticated more than 6000 years ago in Mexico, in the region that extends across southern Puebla and northern Oaxaca to south eastern Veracruz, and were one of the first self-pollinating crops cultivated in Mexico. There are over 140 varieties of chile in Mexico which vary in flavour and heat. The most popular being De Arbol, Pasilla, Jalapeño, Cascabel, Guajillo, Habanero and Poblano.

Gourmet & Deli Mexican cuisine was inscribed in 2010 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO due to its complex and rich variety of cooking ingredients and dishes. Chefs around the world are creating gourmet Mexican dishes, paying tribute to their heritage and culture.

Maize Most historians believe maize was domesticated in the Tehuacan Valley of Mexico 10,000 BC. The Aztecs cultivated numerous varieties throughout Mesoamerica, and cooked, ground or processed it through nixtamalization. Maize was so important to Aztec society that it played a central part in their mythology. Just like wheat in Europe or rice in most of East Asia, it was the food without which a meal was not a meal.

Super Foods Super Food Amaranth was domesticated over 6000 years ago by the Aztecs in Mexico. It was considered an important food crop of the Aztecs and today it is called the Superfood of the Aztecs. Amaranth is gluten free and its seeds contain about 30 percent more protein than rice, sorghum, and rye. It is also relatively high in calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and fibre. Experts believe Amaranth’s amino acid profile is as close to perfect as you can get for a protein source.

Drinks, Tequila & Mezcal Tequila is Mexico’s most representative drink. Its history is long and rich and is surrounded by stories, myths and legends. Tequila transcends simple definition by reaching into the heart of Mexico, past and present. One cannot fully appreciate Mexico without some understanding of tequila’s place in its history and culture
