california endive production shortage 

california-endive-farms-belgian-endiveAs of August 24, please be aware that California Endive Farms is experiencing a severe production shortage from their white endive roots. The roots are only producing at about 25-35% of normal volume. Endive roots are grown in the summer months and harvested in the fall/winter, then stored at freezing temperatures until they are thawed and finished growing into endive. The roots that are currently being grown into endive were harvested in January. California Endive will begin to harvest their new crop roots in mid-September and hope to be back to full production by mid-October. Production of red and coraline roots are expected to remain steady throughout the shortage of white. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and will update you when supplies increase. Thank you.

Madrid Santa Fe Trading Company is owned and operated by the Madrid family and is located in South Sacramento near the metropolitan Airport. Following a successful restaurant career in New Mexico and Sacramento, Andy and Lola Madrid started a tortilla business in 1983, initially producing six tortillas per minute. They created a line of specialty tortillas in 1993 and saw production rise to 5,000 tortillas a day. Currently, the business is in the hands of their children and they are producing up to 35,000 flavored tortillas per day.

The Madrids emphasize the healthy aspects of their tortillas; low fat, no food coloring, cholesterol free, no trans fat. They use 100% soybean oil, whole wheat flour and literally bake fresh ingredients-garlic, onions, spinach, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro-into their flour tortillas.

The uses for tortillas are only limited to the creative imagination of the culinary artist. The unique colors and flavors provide the cook with a visibly appealing condiment or main entrée. Unlike other wraps that use dried, artificial flavorings and food coloring, these eye-catching tortillas are hand-pressed, all natural and 100% vegan.
