Last updated on September 7th, 2017 at 09:43 am

Gruma, through its U.S. subsidiary Mission Foods, is donating 26 tons of food products, such as packages of corn tortillas and chips, to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The packages are being delivered through the Houston Food Bank and the Red Cross.

“Out of a spirit of great solidarity we are providing support to those who need help in Houston,” said Juan González Moreno, president and CEO of Gruma.

Moreno instructed company personnel to coordinate “the delivery of aid to those who suffered harm from the meteorological phenomenon that had such a major impact on the United States city,” the company said.

“For Gruma and Mission Foods, support for the affected population is very important. This solidarity is why we are providing our help to those suffering in Houston,” Moreno said.

Help from Mission Foods arrived in Houston on three of the company’s trailers, and Gruma personnel are in constant communication and coordination with Houston authorities if more help is required in the coming days, the food maker says.
