Grupo Bimbo invests $86 million in new Colombian plant

With an investment of $86 million after one year of construction, Grupo Bimbo Colombia has opened a new production plant and distribution centre in Tenjo, in the Cundinamarca Department in Colombia. These facilities have a capacity of eight tons per hour, four production lines to produce hamburger buns, snacks and puff-pastry buns - the latter a new category not previously introduced in Colombia - and will, the company believes, contribute with a major percentage to the 2017 sales.

Fernando López, President of Bimbo Colombia, said that these new facilities expand production capacity to meet current demand. He also pointed out that 270 new direct jobs are created, adding to the 3,800 current job positions.
