Gran Luchito – The Great Little Fighter

Gran Luchito was started in 2012 when the only Mexican food you could find came from a kit in the supermarket.

From the start Gran Luchito has stood for challenging the status quo with a fighting spirit to bring you real, authentic Mexican. It’s in our name after all! Did you know that Gran Luchito translated means ‘Great Little Fighter’?

Meet Our Founder – Fergus

The inspiration for Gran Luchito came from our founder and El Capitan Fergus. He travelled around vibrant and colourful Mexico on a trip of a lifetime and was blown away by the authentic flavours and ingredients of the food he enjoyed. Fergus decided to create a brand that would deliver the authentic taste of Mexico. 

At first, he only sold Gran Luchito at the weekend from a stall in East London’s Maltby Street Market. Buoyed by the enthusiasm of early buyers, Fergus decided to make it his full-time vocation and passion.

The Best Quality, Freshest Ingredients

Right from the start, Fergus was determined to make Mexican with the same love and care he had discovered.

Exploring all of Mexico, searching for the highest quality ingredients from local Mexican suppliers, using authentic recipes that people have enjoyed for generations and preserving traditional cooking techniques are integral to what makes Gran Luchito unique.

Real Mexican Made By You

We are also hugely passionate about helping you to discover how delicious (and easy) scratch cooking authentic Mexican dishes at home with our products can be!

We have created over 250 recipes from Easy Chicken Tacos which can be made in a matter of minutes to complex dishes such as Chicken Mole which are symbolic and celebrated in Mexican cuisine. We are always updating and adding to our collection!
