NUTRITIONAL IMPROVEMENT

Innovation and Reformulation

We reformulated our products to improve their nutritional profile and look after our consumer’s requirements.

During 2019, 82% of our everyday consumer products increased in nutritional quality*.
*As established in updated nutritional guidelines.

We have 7 innovation centers: 2 in the US, 1 in Canada, 1 in Mexico, 1 in Latin America and 2 in Europe.

Grupo Bimbo created Eleva Food Technology by Bimbo, our accelerator platform that provides startups with the elements necessary to roll out solutions in areas such as innovative ingredients, new products and packaging, technology for supply chains and waste reduction; automation of production lines, renewable energy, payment and/or transaction methods, and retail or sales.

Throughout the first two generations, ELEVA has fostered 17 startups with over 500 participants, in places such as Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Canada, and Guatemala.

Alliances and Reseach

The work with institutions, doctors and experts, as well as with food and health regulatory authorities is important to achieve continuous improvement of the nutrient profile of our products. We maintain strategic alliances with research centers such as the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT); recognized institutes like the Whole Grains Council, Consumer Goods Forum and the International Food and Beverage Alliance (IFBA).

Our Health and Welfare action platforms remain aligned to those defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) in order to adopt internationally-recognized strategies and best practices.
