Segment ranking summary

Active in the food and beverage manufacturers/processors segment, Gruma performs below average compared to its peers. In governance and strategy, nutrition and environment, Gruma is among the weakest performers due to its lack of disclosure. As a food processor, it is critical for Gruma to align with its peers on topics such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water and plastic use, and labelling. In social inclusion, the company has an average performance on farmers resilience which could be strengthened by providing quantitative evidence of the impact of its activities. While Gruma discloses evidence of grievance mechanisms for its workers and external stakeholders, it fails to commit to human rights and labour rights in its operations and supply chain thus lagging behind its peers.
