Llano Seco Introduces New Pork Taco Meat Line

Llano Seco Introduces New Pork Taco Meat Line

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Llano Seco is taking tacos to the next level with its new line of pre-spiced pork taco meat. The sixth-generation premier provider of sustainable, super-high quality pork is introducing three flavors featuring chef-inspired spice blends—perfect for an one-pan weeknight meal or last minute dinner party.

Charles Thieriot, Owner and Director, Branded Products“More and more people want fresh, local, high quality, environmentally sustainable and ethical food while at the same time they expect it to be interesting, delicious and convenient,” said Charles Thieriot, Owner and Director of Branded Products. “As producers we were scratching our heads one day while eating tacos and a light went on. As long as we keep the geographical footprint fairly small we can deliver all of the above attributes. We can actually do this while paying homage to the west coast’s rich history with Mexico in a way that helps us balance the selling of whole animals.”

Chili Colorado: A blend of spices including oregano, cumin, onion, garlic and a pop of bold chili flavorSimply sauté these packages of pre-spiced meat and serve with all your favorite taco toppings—or add to a burrito, torta, quesadilla, salad, or other traditional or non-traditional Mexican style meals for a quick and easy entrée.

Flavors include:

  • New Mexican Green Chili: Dried and fresh New Mexican green chili are mixed with roasted tomatoes, cumin, coriander and smoked paprika.
  • Chili Colorado: A blend of spices including oregano, cumin, onion, garlic and a pop of bold chili flavor.
  • Al Pastor: The classic and familiar Mexican flavor. Fresh ground pork mixed with pineapple and achiote paste.

“There is no reason that at our size and with our access to some of the worlds best chefs we shouldn’t be able to provide our customers with a raw pre-spiced and pre-marinated pork product that is clean and delicious,” added Charles. “The people need something they can keep in their fridge or freezer for that last minute dinner party: A party that needs to have food with a story, food that can be part of the party. At Llano Seco, with our new line of taco meats, fast casual grocery meets small batch, high-touch agriculture.”

Shoppers can purchase Llano Seco’s latest line at local grocery stores, the Chico Farmers Markets, and online—and retailers and distributors can contact the company directly to learn more about opportunities.
