bakery have been updated to motion-detection LEDs.
As the production lines have been updated and modernized,
however, sustainability has been part of the
equation.
" The building may be old, but the production lines
are very modern, " Mr. Borges Rivera said. " We're investing
in new equipment all the time. We have a continuous
improvement mindset, and we're always looking for
capital investment opportunities. "
While efficiency may be the first consideration when
looking to upgrade equipment, Grupo Bimbo's second
priority is always to look for equipment that will aid in
meeting its sustainability goals.
" It's worth it because it translates into efficiency and
business opportunities, " said Jimena Hernández, global
sustainability manager, Grupo Bimbo.
Still, Bimbo Santa María retains its place as a company
leader, being the first bakery in multiple ways.
" MANY SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS
BEGIN HERE AND ARE REPLICATED
AT OTHER FACILITIES BECAUSE
IT IS THE FIRST BAKERY. "
Uriel Betancourt, Bimbo Mexico
" Many sustainability projects begin here and are replicated
at other facilities because it is the first bakery, " said
Uriel Betancourt, Bimbo Mexico sustainability director.
Mr. Borges Rivera noted the bakery eliminated a large
boiler through a heat recovery system that now heats
all the water used for proofing product and services
throughout the building.
" We were the first bakery in Mexico to do that, " he said.
A water treatment facility on site allows the plant to
44 Baking & Snack September 2023 / www.bakingbusiness.com
reuse 80% of the treated water for services such as restrooms
and cleaning. Five years ago, Bimbo Santa María
achieved zero waste to landfill; 100% of packaging materials
and food waste is recycled. The plant's electricity
comes from clean energy, either wind farms or the solar
panels installed on the roof five years ago.
Lessons from Santa María
Bimbo Santa María has been a jumping off point for
Grupo Bimbo in so many ways: an incubator for new
products, a training ground for workforce and a pilot
for sustainability initiatives. Many of the practices put in
place at Santa María have been disseminated throughout
Grupo Bimbo's network of facilities, either by company
decree or associates moving throughout the company.
The sustainability targets Santa María has achieved
despite its age have proven, Mr. Borges Rivera explained,
that any bakery can achieve those goals with the
right plan, investment and people who believe it to be
important.
Mr. Zarate pointed to three principles Santa María
embodies, proves and sends out to the rest of Grupo
Bimbo, the first being asset management.
The other two key lessons Mr. Zarate believes Santa
María has helped pass onto other bakeries is the company's
focus on its products and the safety of its people, because
Grupo Bimbo recognizes the importance of both
quality and employees to its success and growth.
" A must for Grupo Bimbo is the quality of the product
that our consumers expect, and the safety of our people, "
he said. " We want to send them home to their families
a little bit tired for a good day of work but happier and
whole. This is our task. "
Seventy-seven years later, Bimbo Santa María beats
on as the heart of the company, fulfilling that dream of
being a sustainable, highly productive and deeply humane
bakery.
