Cacique Foods Moving HQ to Irving, Opens Amarillo Plant
Not only is Hispanic foods company Cacique Foods moving its headquarters from Monrovia, CA to Irving, but it’s opening a new $88 million dairy processing plant in Amarillo, creating 200 jobs.
Cacique is a maker of Mexican-style cheeses, cremas, chorizos, and salsas in the United States and said it is celebrating its 50th anniversary. A leader in a billion-dollar category, Cacique says it has at least one of its products in 80% of grocery stores across the nation.
Cacique’s new Amarillo facility is equipped to handle dairy processing, including production of the company’s Mexican-style cheeses and cremas and will grow Cacique’s offerings while getting products on the shelves of even more stores nationwide.
The 200,000-square-foot facility will feature technology that Cacique says makes it the most state-of-the-art dairy processing facility in the United States. The building is made up of seven miles of stainless-steel pipe and is the equivalent to nearly three-and-a-half football fields.
