Sunset Park welcomes new Tacombi tortilla factory
A new tortilla factory from Tacombi opened up in Sunset Park. It’s not only looking to produce tortillas, but also jobs in the community.
The factory currently has about 60 employees who focus on tasks from cooking the corn to flattening the mix and packaging the product. Tacombi is looking to hire about 30 more employees.
“One of our core values is how we are going to be able to support, to give jobs to our community,” said Carlos De Cosio, chief supply chain officer for Tacombi. “We’re bringing in additional manufacturing lines… this will additionally mean more jobs, secure jobs, jobs that are well-paid.”
