Our Story

Toluca Foods started as a company in 2001 with a plan to import dried peppers, spices, and other ingredients for the Hispanic industry. Now, Toluca Foods has evolved into a company that exports and sells to industries such as retail and institutional markets, as well as food services. Although we are associated with the Hispanic market, many don’t realize that there are other cultures that also indulge in spicy foods (Asian, Mediterranean, Indian, etc.). Toluca Foods has transformed as a company that carries a larger line of goods such as specialty ingredients, institutional items, food service, and seasonings that are proprietary plus our own blends.

Our purpose is to offer a variety of dried, non-perishable, full line of spices and chiles at a fair price with added value. We have a product guarantee as we clean and load our goods into shelf-stable packaging that gives the longest shelf life, which is unrivaled in the industry, as far as best by dates. Our customer service is known for turning orders around quickly and shipping them within a day. Even for larger, more customized orders, our team can turn an order around within a week, while other companies could take between 2-4 weeks. As we grow, Toluca Foods continues to expose the ingredients we offer at a fair price and offer a variety to the restaurant and food service industry.

Everyday, Toluca Foods puts in the effort and work to be where we want to be now and in the future. It’s our goal to sell specialized ingredients that are customized to the industrial market, such as sized and granulated chiles. To reach this objective, we continue to make investments in our equipment every year to supply customized goods. With our impeccable manufacturing, Toluca Foods is not only a food service and retail company, but also an industrial business that puts our customers first.
