Luis Barrios, Misael Bazán, Angélica Guerra, Eduardo Reyes, and Luis Spidonla met as students at the Instituto Tecnológico de Morelia, Mexico. Through JA México and JA Michoacán, the five started out creating tortillas for sale, and soon saw a need for commercial tortilla flour. Now they've started a business, Grupo Masari, that prepares and sells flour for tortillas. Without giving away their trade secret, we can tell you that they mix sorghum with white maize, and they continue to tweak the recipe for better and better results. We're proud to present Grupo Masari as part of our 100 Lives series, which features JA alumni who are making a difference in the world.
