In support of the traditions of Mexico and gastronomy as a cultural factor, Industrias Tajín is part of this project, with which it pays homage to this Tapatio delicacy and endorses its commitment to the preservation of Mexican roots, sharing with the world this dish representative of the popular Jalisco cuisine.

“I consider myself a Chilapatío, because I was born in CDMX, but I have been adopted as a Guadalajara for more than 25 years.
