IRVING, TEXAS — Mission Foods is expanding its chip offerings with Mission Organics Tortilla Chips. The chips are available in three varieties — blue corn, white corn and multigrain. They meet the standards set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program.

Mission Certified Organics Tortilla Chips start off as masa made from organically grown corn. The tortillas then are cooked in organic oil and topped with sea salt for a traditional taste.

“We crafted Mission Organics Tortilla Chips with the organic eater in mind,” said Lola Copeland, director of innovation at Mission Foods. “These chips are the perfect accompaniment to homemade salsa and guacamole made fresh from organic ingredients straight from the farmer’s market.”

Mission Organics Tortilla Chips are available in 13-oz bags for a suggested retail price of $3.99 at select Safeway, Haggen, QFC and Fred Meyers stores throughout Portland, Ore., and Seattle.
