Segment ranking summary

Bachoco is active in the animal proteins and food and beverage manufacturers/processors segments, where it ranks 54th out of 92 and 161st out of 233, respectively. The company is among the weaker performers in both segments, predominantly because of an overall lack of commitments and targets in the environment measurement area and a lack of policies setting out its approach to human rights and social inclusion. While the company has started the journey to address health and nutrition by demonstrating commitments and activities related to food safety and workforce nutrition, the company lags behind its peers when it comes to contributing to the increased availability, accessibility and affordability of healthy foods.
