Madrid / ES. (csf) Cerealto Siro Foods thus completed the divestments announced in January 2020, fulfilling its commitment to find specialist buyers who guarantee the continuity and growth of the business. The completion of the operation with Bakery Iberian Investments, a subsidiary of Mexico’s Grupo Bimbo S.A.B. de C.V., for the Medina del Campo plant was subject to the authorisation of the National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC) and that of Briviesca to Due Diligence.
Both the agreement reached with Bakery Iberian Investments and the one closed with Morato, involve maintaining the working conditions of the plants’ workers. These operations are part of the roadmap of Cerealto Siro Foods’ Strategic Plan 2023 to continue positioning itself as a world reference in the Cookies, Breakfast Cereals, Snacks and Pasta categories. These actions allow the Company to gain efficiency and competitiveness to boost its development and growth and to achieve 2,000 million turnover focused on 30 customers worldwide by 2030.
The sales operations of the Bakery and Bread businesses, as well as the sale of the Jaen factory, allow Cerealto Siro Foods to invest more than 128 million EUR, up to 2025, in new technologies to continue moving towards more specialised, more efficient plants with a greater capacity for innovation.
