Bimbo QSR, the US-based subsidiary of the world’s largest bread maker Grupo Bimbo, has formed a joint venture (JV) with Food Town, exclusive supplier of buns to fast food chain McDonald’s in Kazakhstan.
PepsiCo posted better-than-expected fourth quarter results, primarily driven by its Frito-Lay North American unit, which delivered its fastest rate of growth since 2013, according to CEO Ramon Laguarta.
Grupo Bimbo is looking to scale up innovative startups throughout Latin America with the launch of two accelerator programs, Eleva and BakeLab. “We're looking for the next great ventures in Latin America,” it says.
Half the 10-strong line-up to join PepsiCo’s second annual North American Greenhouse programme includes startups that are poised to disrupt the snacks sector with their takes on healthy, natural and sustainably driven snacks.
