Mexico City, January 31st, 2008. The National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra) (Cámara Nacional de la Industria de Transformación) awarded Grupo Bimbo the San Luis Potosí State Quality Award.

During a ceremony that took place at the Cajas Reales building of the San Luis Potosí Autonomous University, State Governor, Marcelo de los Santos congratulated the winners and said that: “The awards won reflect the commitment to work with the State of San Luis Potosí, and demonstrate the interest of the production sector in promoting the quality of their companies.”

Representing Grupo Bimbo, Mr. Juan Manuel Vidal, expressed: “Unquestionably, one of the factors that added points in our favor, and helped us to win the prize, was Grupo Bimbo’s participation as a socially responsible company committed to the community, and it was also thanks to our sponsorship in auditing Real de Catorce in its certification process as a Clean Municipality.”

These awards represent an additional achievement for Grupo Bimbo, which thus stresses the commitment of its production processes, to high quality in its products and towards the communities where it has facilities.

Regarding Bimbo San Luis Potosí

The Bimbo San Luis Potosí plant opened its doors on June 6, 1991. By 2003, the plant earned the Internal Grupo Bimbo HACCP certification and, in 2005, it won the State Quality Award.

Today, our Bimbo San Luis production encompasses sales territories in the states of San Luis Potosí, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes and part of Tamaulipas. Also, its toasted bread production meets the demand of the central band of our Country from coast to coast, and in doing so, has created 650 direct jobs.

Regarding Ricolino San Luis Potosí

The San Luis Potosí Ricolino plant was put up in 1992.
It currently creates 960 direct and 800 indirect jobs. It manufactures around 250 products for domestic and international sales, which it exports to countries such as the USA, Europe, Central and South America, and is currently making inroads into the Asian market.

Every year, both companies carry out a reforestation campaign together with the Reforestamos México, A. C. foundation, through which they promote the planting of thousands of trees in the region.
