Martinborough’s Cartel Food Company was born out of a desire to offer high quality frozen Mexican food, revitalising the Mexican food genre and reinvigorating the frozen food market.

They saw an increase in Mexican restaurants, fast food chains, and food trucks which indicated a growing trend. Whilst also observing the growing range of Mexican hot sauces, spice mixes, tortillas, and other ingredients in Supermarkets. Amongst this growth, they noticed a gap – no convenient authentic Mexican food.

Their range of four burritos includes Poblano Chilli Pulled Pork, Smokey Chipotle Shredded Beef, Chilli Lime Chicken, Beans and cheese, and a vegetarian burrito.

Look for their burritos in the frozen section usually next to the snack pies and meals.
