Tortilla Manufacturers, All Together Now
Now a mainstream ingredient in America’s diet, the versatile, inexpensive and convenient tortilla is second only to white bread in popularity and consumption. Demand is fueled not only by a growing Hispanic population, but by ever-increasing non-Hispanic interest, which is driving sales of wraps, pitas, pizzas, breakfast meals, desserts and more. Already one of the fastest growing segments in the baking industry, tortilla revenues are expected to increase steadily over the next five years, as manufacturers answer the demand with a new generation of products that target health-conscious, trend-driven and time-poor consumers.
This year, IBIE is once again joining forces with the Tortilla Industry Association (TIA) to give you greater access to the new suppliers, new ideas and networking opportunities you need. Plus, the TIA Technical Conference addresses operation skills, safety regulations, quality control, plant efficiency, and best practices to capitalize on the baking industry’s fastest growing market segment.
