Tortilla Lab

In the recent past, tortillas were considered an ethnic food related to Mexican entrees. Not any more. You can wrap anything from turkey to tofu and the popularity of tortillas and wraps is soaring. This surging demand has brought with it an intensified competition among tortilla manufacturers. The edge is going to those companies that can make a tortilla that rolls better, lasts on the shelf longer, and perhaps comes fortified with some health benefits. At Gillco, we have all of the tools necessary for you to make a better product. Our Sales Specialists are eager to talk to you about your process and perhaps have suggestions on how to make your product stand out from the crowd.
