In July, Capitol Communicator reported on McCormick’s national search for a Director of Taco Relations and that lucky Director of TR has been found. As a storyteller, content creator, and taco connoisseur, Jo Luna, in photograph, has officially been chosen for the highly sought-after position of the Hunt Valley-based spice company’s resident consulting taco expert.
According to McCormick, Luna’s love of tacos is rooted in her Hispanic heritage and upbringing in the border town of El Paso, Texas; but has only grown as she’s traveled around the world, sharing her culture and cuisine with her diverse set of friends and YouTube channel subscribers.
As the Director of Taco Relations, Luna will interact directly with lots of experts — from creative to McCormick’s kitchens teams — to develop new and delicious recipes while connecting with fellow taco connoisseurs to discuss the latest flavor trends.
“I can’t express how excited I am for this opportunity to share my genuine love for tacos,” she says. “To me, there is no better way to form a connection than by sharing a meal. I am going to show the world just how amazing my heritage is, one taco at a time.”
