Our Story

 
In many respects, Frontera Foods originated when Chef Rick Bayless began his travels through Mexico almost thirty years ago. Bayless dreamt of bringing the robust regional flavors of Mexico into everyday contemporary American kitchens. He went to work spreading the word about the cuisine’s enormous potential.

In the late 1980’s, Rick and his wife Deann opened the highly-acclaimed Frontera Grill and Topolobampo restaurants in Chicago. In 1987, they authored the now-classic cookbook “Authentic Mexican,” and in 1995, Rick’s cooking gained him the title of National Chef of the Year by the James Beard Foundation and the International Association of Culinary Professionals.

In 1996, Manuel Valdes, formerly a marketing manager at Kraft Foods and consultant with Arthur Andersen & Co. joined Rick to establish Frontera Foods, Inc. to produce and market a line of regional Mexican food products using all natural ingredients and time-honored cooking methods. Partners JeanMarie Brownson and Greg Keller joined the Frontera Foods team as Culinary Director and National Sales Director, respectively.

Today, there are more than 65 products in the Frontera Food’s line.
