Big Flippin’ Deal: Mexican Giant Buys The Albuquerque Tortilla Company

The largest manufacturer of corn and flour tortillas in the world, Monterrey-based tyrant Gruma has purchased the Albuquerque Tortilla Company for $8.8 million, and some Albuquerqueans are pissed.

The acquisition will “help expand and strengthen Gruma’s tortilla business in the United States via a solid and recognized brand in the southwestern part of the country,” the Mexican company stated.

Choice reactions include one girl who is “appalled” and yes, a Jabba the Hutt comparison.
