About Aztec Vanilla - A Legacy of Quality and Culture
Our Journey: From Passion to Pioneering Vanilla Excellence
Aztec Vanilla was born from a simple yet profound passion for high-quality vanilla. Our founder, Carlos Avelar, embarked on a quest for the finest vanilla beans for his own culinary creations. This journey led him to Mexico, where he discovered vanilla beans that were not just good, but extraordinary. His enthusiasm for these beans was the catalyst for Aztec Vanilla, an endeavor that began as a personal passion and grew into a mission to bring top-tier Mexican vanilla to the United States.
Rooted in Heritage, Committed to Excellence
At Aztec Vanilla, our core mission resonates deeply with our Mexican heritage. We take pride in offering a product that is not only of superior quality but also a tribute to our culture. The Aztecs, known for their rich culinary traditions, were among the first to use vanilla. We continue this legacy, ensuring that every product from Aztec Vanilla embodies the essence of our heritage and our unwavering commitment to excellence.
Continuing a Vision: The Avelar Family's Dedication
Founded by Carlos Avelar, and now led by his sons, Carlos Jr. and Eric, Aztec Vanilla is more than a business – it's a family legacy. Carlos's passion and vision continue to inspire us every day. His passing in March 2023 marked a turning point, but his spirit lives on as we, his sons, dedicate ourselves to not only maintaining but also expanding our father's vision, embracing innovation and growth.
Looking Ahead: The Future of Aztec Vanilla
As we look to the future, our goals are clear: to broaden the e-commerce presence of Aztec Vanilla, to venture into new marketplaces, and to introduce an array of products that complement our existing offerings. Our journey is one of continuous growth and dedication to bringing the finest Mexican vanilla to kitchens worldwide.
