Mexican seasonings and hot sauces producer Industrias Tajin opened a new LEED certified manufacturing facility and its Center for Research and Field Experimentation (CICE) in Jalisco, Mexico, the company announced this week.

The $50 million plant includes 161,458 sq ft of space, 10 production lines, and three warehouses. Industrias Tajin’s location can manufacture 5.3 million lb/mo of product, expanding the firm’s overall capacity by 80%.

“The global consumption of chili peppers and chili-based products shows no signs of letting up,” Javier Leyva, director of Tajin US, said in a release. “Currently, the US is our biggest market outside of Mexico and represents 50% of our global sales. With Tajin’s presence in more than 65 countries and expanding, our multi-million-dollar investment will allow us to meet this growing demand and increase our global footprint.”

Tajin’s new site is part of an effort to transform the region into a center of production for high-quality chili peppers. The firm’s Tajin Classico Seasoning is the top chili powder brand in the US and Mexico.
