Discover Industrias Bachoco
In 2022, Bachoco is proud to celebrate 70 years of being part of our consumers’ diet.
In 1952, in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, the brothers Juan, Javier, Enrique and Alfonso Robinson Bours began to commercialize eggs for dishes with a farm of 1,000 birds. After seeing their dream evolve, in 1971 they ventured into the chicken and pork business.
To this date, the founding family’s commitment has been to generate value and create distinctive differentiators that would allow Bachoco to consolidate itself as what it is today, one of the most recognized brands in Mexico and one of the most relevant poultry companies worldwide.
Bachoco has been able to expand not only to the United States but also to other proteins ranging from processed pork, beef, balanced feed and pet food.
