The story of the famous Salsa Guacamaya, began in 1948, at El Rosario, Sinaloa. (Mexico) where Don Pablo Gandarilla and Doña Severa del Rincon Bernal launched small and domestic business.
Originally the sauce was developed through rudimentary techniques and utensils. A manual mill for nixtamal and stone metate were used to grind the chili and spices used for the sauce.
Basically the sauce were prepared with ground chiles, spices and condiments. Small productions were obtained with these methods, yet they allowed the sauce became popular in the town and the southern part of the state. The great acceptance of the sauce forced to expand production volumes and thus the techniques used to make the sauce.
In 1962 the sauce reaches the city of Culiacan, Sinaloa, through the partnership with city entrepreneurs. Thus, the small family business became an institutional company. In 1987 started the construction of a big factory in Culiacan, increasing the production and ensuring the supply. By this time the Salsa Guacamaya has already been established as part of Sinaloa's taste, and began to penetrate in the states of Sonora and Baja California.
By today, Industrias Guacamaya is a company with over 200 employees, in different states of Mexico and distribution points in the United States.
Equipped with modern technology and production equipment, ensuring the commitment and quality of the original product, Industrias Guacamaya currently produces a great variety of sauces, spices and products from nearly seven decades ago. We continue "dando el punto" to Mexican and international food.
