Bimbo markets, works and distributes a wide variety in terms of products, among which the cash bread, panquelía, sweet bread, cakes, pastries, salty and sweet snacks, confectionery, roasted, cajeta, corn packed tortillas and of wheat flour among many others.
This company is intended to be a sustainable, highly productive and fully human company. The links involved in said supply chain; Among the links of this chain are the suppliers, which this company contacts them to acquire the raw material, in order to obtain the best inputs to achieve a quality product. Production production and planning line, BIMBO has around 144 plants that have the commission to satisfy the different demand levels in all the markets in which it is located.
These in their planning have chosen to be located in strategic areas that allow what is the supply in the markets that are closest to this. In their process in terms of production they have opted for techniques that manage to maintain production levels in an efficient way, always taking and considering the standards in terms of quality which are essential to satisfy the customer.

The customer who receives the order cannot receive it if the load period has passed the 36 hrs, due to the nature that the products have a high rotation index in terms of perishable raw materials. Distributors, Bimbo has been characterized by handling a dual system, which means that it has more than one distribution system, and it also works a lot so that in this process you can optimize it and increase market coverage. And they consider that if there is what is a good distribution that increased market penetration.
