Segment ranking(s) summary

When compared to companies in the food and beverage manufacturers/processors segment, Grupo Bimbo ranks in the top thirty thanks to its leading practices across several measurement areas. The company sits within the top ten in nutrition, demonstrating leadership among its peers in terms of reporting on its practices to increase the availability of healthy foods. In environment, Grupo Bimbo outperforms its peers on setting commitments towards sustainable packaging and reduction of food loss and waste. However, it can align with its peers in the leading positions by strengthening its commitments regarding key environment topics, including GHG emissions, water use and responsible sourcing of high-risk commodities.
