Siete Family Foods puts innovative spin on heritage foods

When one of the Garza sisters aimed to fix her autoimmune disease with a diet change, the whole family joined in, and a budding natural food company was formed.

Six of the seven siblings in the Garza family work for the company, creating new formulations for the staple foods that are traditional to their heritage but designed for those seeking out grain-free products. The company motto, "Family first, family second, business third," creates a culture that encourages family collaboration in everything from recipe development to marketing. Siete Family Foods has expanded its line of grain-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and vegan tortillas to include tortilla chips that meet the same special-diet requirements.

Here, cofounder Miguel Garza explains the company's founding story and philosophy.
