In commenting on Q3 results Rodolfo Ramos Arvizu, CEO of Bachoco, stated: “This was a typical third quarter for the Company, in terms of seasonality, with chicken prices at their weakest as compared to the first half of the year. In Me´xico, we observed lower demand that negatively affected our prices, unlike the U.S., where majot commodity prices remained strong for most of the quarter.


In terms of cost of sales, prices of corn and soybean meal remained high when compared to previous years, fully impacting our cost in Me´xico and the U.S. As a result, our cost of sales was 16.6% higher than reported in Q3 of 2020. Despite the challenging conditions of this quarter, the Company remained in a healthy financial condition which will allow us to continue to support our growth plans.”
