GRUMA is considered an international company.

As part of our expansion strategy into the international market, we acquired 10 plants in the United States. 

We built the first cornflour mill in Edinburg, Texas  which created  Azteca Milling, a subsidiary that would quickly produce profits  and would represent  significant growth in  flour sales for the tortilla industry in the United States.

In the United States  we also acquired "Guerrero", a brand with strongroots in  southern California, which is now very beloved by the Mexicans in this country.

At the end of the decade we established ourselves into an international company and during these years our executives were already equal  to the highest performance standards for directors of U.S. transnational companies.
