On-Site Salsa Tour Success!
Taj Mahal of Chicken Coops Scrutinized!
Members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico gathered at Albuquerque's iconic El Pinto Restaurant in the beautiful North Valley in February for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what makes this acclaimed landmark a ground-breaker in the desirable world of organic gardening, animal welfare approval, and manufacturing process sustainability.
With the capacity to make 3-4 million jars a year. El Pinto's factory, which is both Safe Quality Food (SQF) and Organic Certified, the manufacturing facility was expanded in 2017 by 5,000 square feet and is currently expanding again to meet the growing demand for their own products and those of other food suppliers. The tour began on the manufacturing line, proceeded into the world of organic greenhouse gardening, and ended at the Taj Mahal of chicken coops, The Hen Hotel.
Happy hens make nutritionally superior eggs and the El Pinto Girls lay pasture-raised eggs for all the restaurant's entrees. The average laying hen in the United States lives in 76 square inches of real estate in a cage. These New Mexico hens roam freely with about 50 square feet of space each where they dine organically on grubs, worms. and insects and are supplemented with red chile sprouts, wheatgrass and jalapenos from the kitchen as they contemplate the vista of Sandia Crest to east.
Douglas Evilsizor, El Pinto's marketing manager and designated tour guide, commented, "I have never had so many people ask so many good questions. From the manufacturing line to our water use practices, your knowledge of facilities and operations was clear. Very fun and respectful group of folks!"
This event was corporately sponsored by Mooring Restoration and Construction who graciously provided goodie bags for all. Following a hot and spirited competition for Mooring's $50 Amazon rewards card for the Best Cowboy Boots, El Pinto kicked in the swag, too, by sending everyone off with a coupon for a free jar of their award-winning salsa
