About Us

Mama originates from San Luis, Potosi, Mexico.  She is an artist at the blending of Mexican Spices. All of our products will give you the best products anywhere. These products are true Gourmet without the Gourmet price. Our mission is simple: to provide the best products and service to our customers at the lowest price possible.

Mama Socorro's was started in 1973. Mama would sell to friends, family, in farmers markets, and was deeply involved making authentic Mexican dinners for her church. It wasn’t until 1993 when her son Bebo convinced her to put her products in the local grocery stores. The Kansas City grocery stores welcomed her and her sales kept growing. Most of Mama Socorro's products are made in a Handicapped workshop providing jobs to those that may have a hard time gaining employment. This is something we are so proud of and since 1993 have always done.

 In 2006 Don Johnson became CEO to add professionalism to the package and distribution. In 2012 Mama passed away at the young age of 96, (she always said her salsa with her secret spice mix makes you live longer); maybe she's right! Mama Socorro sales have grown every year since 1993 and today we are in 800 stores spanning nationwide and growing. Mama added love in her secret mix and have left us other recipes to present in the future. Our goal is to always bring the quality of product that mama cared so much about.

Our online store is designed to provide you with a safe and secure environment to browse our product catalog.  Please enjoy shopping!
