Lita’s Mexican Foods is Canada’s first and only 100% vegan Mexican frozen food manufacturer and aims to become the Mexican food category leader in Canada. What started as a home-based business has grown into a multi-line selection of clean label products that incorporate the authentic flavours of traditional Mexican dishes in options like vegan taquitos, Certified Organic uncooked flour tortillas and taco kits. Lita’s mission has always been to create high quality products that are built upon a social and environmental framework, which they are succeeding at by reducing their plastic footprint as a Certified Plastic Negative Company and with community outreach and inclusive hiring practices. As they await an eco-plastic alternative that meets food safety demands, they have partnered with rePurpose Global, which has enabled Lita’s to remove over 300,000 single use plastic bags from nature annually; and in 2022, they were honored by WorkBC for providing an inclusive workplace. Today, Lita’s products can be found in over 200 natural, independent, and conventional retailers across Canada, as well as several food service establishments.
