US-based frozen foods manufacturer Red’s has opened its first manufacturing facility in North Sioux City, South Dakota.

The location of the new facility enable the company to source better ingredients and distribute its products across the US.

Red’s will produce all natural and organic frozen burritos, burrito bowls, enchiladas and taquitos at the plant, which also features a research and development kitchen that will be used by company chefs to create natural food ideas that will be later moved into production.

“We have always valued quality above all else and couldn’t be happier to have total control over our own production so we can deliver an amazing food experience."

It also provides a platform to the company to further expand its US business operations.

Red’s founder and CEO Mike Adair said: “We have always valued quality above all else and couldn’t be happier to have total control over our own production so we can deliver an amazing food experience.

“When I started Red’s, I wanted to bring natural, wholesome, and delicious flavours to the frozen food aisle and deliver on the promise of having ‘the best burrito, period.’

“Having our own facility is not only the natural progression of our company’s trajectory, it’s also critical to ensure that every Red’s product we put on freezer shelves has the very best ingredients, tastes amazing, and is made with great care.”

The company intends to create nearly 40 jobs through its new manufacturing facility in the region.
