Founders Kelly van Harten (from the Netherlands) and Karla Plancarte (from Mexico) travelled to Karla’s hometown of Mexico City where they learned the craftsmanship of making fresh corn tortillas in a local tortilleria. “The original idea was to open a Mexican taqueria, but because there were no authentic corn tortillas available, we decided to start from there and focus on fresh corn tortillas first,’’ explains Kelly. ‘’We wanted to introduce a high-quality tortilla made from organic ingredients and without any preservatives.’’ The corn tortillas made by Taiyari are naturally gluten-free, salt-free and vegan.
