MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD AND CEO

Daniel Servitje

Chairman of the Board and CEO

Don Roberto Servitje

For over 65 years, at Grupo Bimbo we have aspired to the highest performance standards. Our principles and values, person-centered, have been the integral complement to the success of a responsible, committed, productive and profitable company.

To Grupo Bimbo, 2012 was a transition year that was defined by the integration of three transformative acquisitions in the U.S., Argentina and Bimbo Iberia (Spain and Portugal). Despite the challenging environment for the global economy, we continue to invest in the modernization of our production platforms and implementing various initiatives to generate savings. This was the first full year of operations of the three acquisitions, strengthening our presence in 19 countries on 3 continents.

The consumption in some of the major markets in which we participate, registered a marginal growth, however the volumes remained stable and with a positive trend in most regions, registering an increase in net sales.

Don Roberto Servitje, Daniel Servitje

As part of our commitment to the health and welfare of our customers, we continue to transform our portfolio through innovation, product reformulation, the practice of responsible marketing, and adherence to the guidelines of the World Health Organization, promoting together with public and private organizations, physical activity and adopt healthy lifestyles.

In 2012 we concluded one of our largest projects focused on reducing the environmental footprint of our operations. It was inaugurated Piedra Larga wind farm, located in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, and considered the world's largest dedicated to the food industry. Currently Piedra Larga supplies with clean energy to nearly 100% of our facilities in Mexico. This will avoid the annual fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere in about 65 million liters of diesel equivalent to 180, 000 tons of CO2.

Added to this, we are one of the ten mexican companies that have obtained for thirteenth consecutive year the distinctive Socially Responsible Company granted by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (CEMEFI). We also continue reporting the CO2 generation rate per ton produced, using among others, the guide made by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative, GHG Protocol (Greenhouse Gas Protocol) and the Mexico GHG Protocol (Greenhouse Gas)

Furthermore, our safety improved in the year, this is an example of progress that is developing a comprehensive culture in this area. 

At Grupo Bimbo we give the highest value to our associates and will continue to make personal safety a key priority.

That's why, making a commitment to the present and future generations, Grupo Bimbo integrates Corporate Social Responsibility into its daily operations of production and distribution in the 19 countries where it has presence, allowing us to align the economic, social and environmental objectives efficiently and responsibly.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to the more than 124,000 associates globally comprising Grupo Bimbo team for their dedication and commitment over the years. I also thank our customers, suppliers, partners and communities to continue giving us your trust and support.
