Our Story

Corn tortillas have been a dietary staple in Mexico since time immemorial thanks to their nutritional benefits. Over time, they have also become a staple of international cuisine, a universal culinary language transcending cultures and boundaries. No wonder Mexican cuisine, including corn tortillas, is recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). 

Founded by Mexican-Canadian entrepreneur Miguel Angel Jiménez Reyes, Tortilla Maker is a family business based in Orleans, Ottawa. Tortilla Maker is the result of a confluence of cultures and personal histories, born of the desire to extend a family connection to our adopted country, Canada. Our homemade salsas – Salsas Carlota – are inspired by great-grandmother Carlota Silvestre Cornejo’s own original recipes, passed down for generations.  

Tortilla Maker was also born of the desire to preserve the ancient method of making nixtamal tortillas, preserve their unique flavour and aroma, expand their popularity and promote maize consumption in Canada.
