Old El Paso offers a variety of Mexican flavors for our meals. Is there anything better than sharing a meal with your family and friends!
The history of Old El Paso products extends from the first encounter of the Native Americans and Spaniards. At that time, the Native American diet was inspired by Spanish influences, and the result were dishes now called Mexican food. The history of the Old El Paso brand dates back to 1916, when the Powell family of New Mexico began to can tomatoes, surface beans, beans and other vegetables they grew in Deming.
The Old El Paso trademark was registered in 1952 and today it is owned by General Mills. General Mills’ operations are strongly guided by community support and sustainability values.
Both the history and location right by the Mexican border ensure Old El Paso knows how Mexican food should taste. A recent Finnish consumer blind test of wheat tortillas showed that as many as 62% of the respondents chose Old El Paso as their favorite, and the reasons were clear: taste and texture.
