The story of a family recipe and how it became what is XOCHiTL today!

mama-salinasWborder

It has been more than 90 years since my family began making Chipotle salsa. When I was growing up some 35 years ago, I was taught how to make this salsa and I have continued making it through out my life.

It was common to hear from my friends that it was a delicious salsa and that I should market it. One day, out of the blue, a lady called to ask me a favor. “Carlos: I tried your wonderful salsa. I really enjoyed it and I was thinking it would be a perfect gift for my best customers. Would you be so kind to prepare some for me?” I said: “Sure! How much do you want?”

“Well, 200 jars.”

“What?” I thought! “It’s too much for one cook.” Every batch was taking me approximately five hours due to the extensive process it takes to produce the salsa. She said: “Just give me the price, and I’ll call you next week.” I thought, “I won’t do it in my kitchen, it’s a lot of salsa to make.” But the love for challenges that I have as an entrepreneur encouraged me to begin small production batches and test marketing.

The fantastic acceptance of my first Chipotle Salsa drove me to develop other products, visit plants, stores, food shows, sampling… it was incredible what I was experiencing…a huge success in sales.

Today, our objective is to provide the finest products with the most unique home made flavors that we can find in the remote places of the old continents.

Deb GariepyI quit buying your chips a couple of years ago because they were found after an investigation by consumer reports to contain 75% GMO corn. I was disappointed by this as I do not wish to consume GMO foods, and I really liked your chips. As much as I liked them, I quit purchasing because of this.

While shopping in a CVS store here in WA state this week, I again saw a bag of your chips with the Non GMO Project Certified stamp on them. Are your chips now actually completely free of gmo’s? I understand you have the stamp on your bag, but how do I know that the former situation has been fixed? What did you do as a company to assure your ingredients are now non-GMO? I would really like some answers before I feel comfortable purchasing your products again, as your company was deceptive in the past. What can you do to assure me that your chips are now completely GMO free?

Thank you.

Xochitl Chips & SalsasDeb Gariepy, thank you very much for your input, questions and interest in Xochitl. Accurate labeling and quality assurance is something we take very seriously to ensure that we are bringing a true quality product to the marketplace. Starting off, we would like to state that we have always requested Non-GMO corn from our supplier and this is the reason we purchase from them. You can be sure that anything you purchase from Xochitl which has a Non-GMO logo attached has been thoroughly verified by the organization. We would like to provide you with a little information on how we go about ensuring that these raw ingredients that go into our products are Non-GMO Verified. The first step starts with the supplier, our corn supplier tests all of the corn that they send us, themselves. However, this is where the second step comes in. In lieu of letting the buck stop there, we test every load that arrives at our facility. If the load were to contain any trace of GMO’s, we would not even unload the product, it will immediately be turned away. Finally, to be absolutely sure that we are receiving what we are requesting, Xochitl sends a sample from every lot of corn we receive to a third party laboratory for a quantitative GMO test. Below you will find a link to the Project Non-GMO website that will take you directly to the list of our products. We hope that this information has helped restore your faith in the quality of our brand. We stand behind our products 100% and we strive to bring the best quality products to our customers 100% of the time. Please, if you have any more questions, comments, or if you would like to speak with us about anything, please feel free to email us at: info@salsaxochitl.com www.nongmoproject.org/find-non-gmo/search-participating-products/search/?brandId=8447
