Berenice Tenorio, CEO of Nuestra Cocina Food Company, sits down on The Face of Latina Professionals Podcast to share her story of being a Latina executive in the food industry.
Born and raised in Hidalgo Mexico, Berenice had a dream of studying at one of the most prestigious schools in Mexico, a private university in Monterey. Coming from humble beginnings without much money, most people told her it was impossible.
“And I said, you know what I'm gonna do? Find solutions. And that's basically my personality. I always try to find solutions when everybody tells me there is a problem or you cannot do this.”
Putting her mind to solving the problem, Berenice not only found scholarship opportunities and a way to pay for her school and expenses, she graduated from that prestigious university with a degree in International Business, taking a job opportunity in the United States after graduating.
Berenice goes on to share her passion for international exposure and how a girl from a small town in Mexico created those opportunities for herself.
Today, not only is she very proud to be a Latina in the U.S, she also runs her own company manufacturing food products. All of her products, ranging from yogurts and sour creams to meats, include a Mexican flavor.
“One unique thing about our company is that we want to manufacture products that are one hundred percent natural. When we manufacture these products, we want all our processes to be friendly with the environment.”
