Our Story

The idea behind the creation of MegaMex Foods was simple, to take the best of two power house brands from two countries and bring the flavors of Mexico to the dinner and restaurant tables across the globe. So, in October of 2009, Herdez del Fuerte, S.A. de CV of Mexico and Hormel Foods of the US did just that. More than a decade later, MegaMex Foods is one of the fastest growing Mexican Food companies in the US as a key supplier of Mexican products in retail, foodservice and convenience stores with businesses domestic and international.

MegaMex Foods holds several key number one retail honors such as: 

  • WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE – America’s #1 selling branded refrigerated guacamole
  • WHOLLY® AVOCADO – America’s #1 selling branded refrigerated avocado
  • HERDEZ® Salsa Verde- America’s #1 selling verde salsa
