Flagship Food Group, the maker of 505 Southwestern® sauces, salsas, and snacks, has recently purchased Select New Mexico, the Southwestern food company known for its authentic Hatch, NM, green chile, red chile sauce, and nearly 50 other prepared frozen foods, dry spices, and corn husks. With the Flagship name behind it, Select New Mexico is now working on expanding its product line and will be introducing new foods later this year.
“It will be business as usual for our employees and customers,” said Harold Montano, President of Select New Mexico, “except that now we just have more resources behind us.” Mr. Montano will continue to lead all direct store delivery (DSD) efforts for Select New Mexico, as well as the Flagship Food Group going forward.
J. Robert Gallegos, Select New Mexico’s Founder and CEO, added “I’ve built Select New Mexico from the ground up over many decades, and I’m proud to be passing the baton to Flagship and their team. They have made commitments to me, my people, and our customers that I am very proud of. I’m confident that they are in good hands.”
Flagship is committed to providing high-quality food and service excellence to its customers, an important part of Select New Mexico’s reason for choosing Flagship as their new partner. Mr. Gallegos was clear in selecting a buyer who shared his values and commitment to his employees and customers, to whom he’s devoted over 30 years of his life, who are like family.
