The main purpose of this paper is the study of a~new class of summing multilinear operators acting from the product of Banach lattices with some nontrivial lattice convexity. A mixed Pietsch--Maurey--Rosenthal type factorization theorem for these operators is proved under weaker convexity requirements than the ones that are needed in the Maurey--Rosenthal factorization through products of $L^q$-spaces. A by-product of our factorization is an extension of multilinear operators defined by a~$q$-concavity type property to a product of special Banach function lattices which inherit some lattice--geometric properties of the domain spaces, as order continuity and $p$-convexity. Factorization through Fremlin's tensor products is also analyzed. Applications are presented to study a special class of linear operators between Banach function lattices that can be characterized by a strong version of $q$-concavity. This class contains $q$-dominated operators, and so the obtained results provide anew factorization theorem for operators from this class.
