    It is with great pride and humility to announce thah on behalf of Bimbo QSR, I formally accepted the Chevalier dans Ordre National du Merite (National Order of Merit) award on behalf oj President Emmanuel Mcron from French Consulate in Chicago. This very important distinction was bestowed upon us as recognition of out economic growth and development within France.

    Global economic relevance and development has been a strong agenda element of the Macron administration. Our journey in France began over 30years ago with our first bakery in Fleury Mérogis: we then expanded to Aix Provence. More recently, our investment in Paris with the opening of the Le Plessis Bakery solidified our commitment to not only meetingthe bakery needs of our QSR Customers, but also providing new economic opportunities in the region.

    Our success in France could not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of our hardworking BQ cross-functional teams in Quality, R&D, Operations, Finance and Supply Chain have all greatly contributed to earning the Chevalier award and to the success in the region.
