EFE.- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has asked Mexican food company Bimbo to invest more in Canada, where it already has 16 production sites and some 4,300 employees.
Trudeau made the request to Grupo Bimbo CEO Daniel Servitje during the meeting the two held Monday in Mexico City as part of the X Summit of North American Leaders taking place in the Mexican capital.
As revealed Tuesday by the Office of the Prime Minister of Canada (OPMC), Trudeau expressed his gratitude to Servitje for Grupo Bimbo’s investment and operations in the country.
“The Prime Minister encouraged Grupo Bimbo to maintain and expand its investments in Canada,” the OPMC said in a statement.

During the meeting with Servitje, Trudeau also emphasized that Canada is an attractive country for investment due to its low costs, access to export markets, commitment to renewable energy and state-of-the-art agricultural technology.
Grupo Bimbo, which also has 11 distribution centers and 183 warehouses in Canada, is the largest Mexican investor in that other North American country.
