History

1923

"Conservas La Costeña®" was born as a result of the entrepreneurial vision of Don Vicente López Resines, who in that year acquired a grocery store called "La Costeña®", which soon became popular for its serrano peppers and long peppers in vinegar.

Mission

1937 - 1948

Don Vicente decided to produce his own cans. Our first production plant opened in Mexico City.

1951 - 1971

Our products reached whole Mexico for the first time.

A new plant opened in Ecatepec, State of Mexico (where we are currently located), with a total space of 40 hectares.

Envases sellados de manera electrostática

1986 - 1991

To protect the environment, we replaced lead-welded containers with electrostatically sealed ones.

Another production plant was inaugurated, now in Guasave, Sinaloa, where we began the development of our Tomato Sauce and Vegetable lines.

1997 - 2003

We implemented the new "easy open" system.

In Guasave, Sinaloa, the Combibloc aseptic packaging system (which eliminates microorganisms through ultra pasteurization in carton packs) was introduced.

By reaching quality standards, we were certified in ISO 9001, version 2000.

We celebrated 85 years, thanks to the preference of our consumers.

2011 - 2013

We started operations of the second Automated Distribution Center.

We received the National Public Image Award for our 90-year career in the national market, and for reaching more than 50 countries with our products.
