In 1977, Juanita’s
Foods acquired the Pico Pica Sauce brand and in 1984,
the company built a new plant and began canning a hot and spicy
Menudo, called Menudo Picoso, and Albondigas, a traditional meatball
soup, as well as Pico Pica Taco Sauce. Shortly thereafter, Juanita’s
Foods became the first company to introduce authentic Mexican-style
hominy. In 1986, the company officially changed its name from Harbor
Canning Company to Juanita’s
Foods and focused on the image of the
Mexican lady who had become the symbol of authentic, ready-to-serve
home cooked Mexican food.
Foods is the world’s largest manufacturers of prepared, “canned Menudo.” Juanita’s
also offers Chicken and Pork Pozole, Meatball Soup, Mexican-Style Hominy, Hot and Mild Sauces, Traditional Beef and Vegetable and Traditional Chicken and Vegetable Soups, Traditional Beef Chile Colorado and Pork Chile Verde stews. All of this very authentic, ready-to-eat Mexican food delicacies are being sold under the Juanita’s
Foods and Pico Pica brands. Now a third generation family-run business, it is their on-going commitment to innovation, authenticity and quality that has allowed Juanita’s
Foods to become a leader in the Mexican food category.
