Sigma is the Mexican leader in the production and distribution of refrigerated and frozen foods. In 2009, the company recorded sales in the amount of 29.7 billion pesos. Sigma’s leading role and outstanding performance within its markets establish it as the company with the largest number of products on the tables of Mexican families. Sigma provides employment for more than 28 thousand individuals. It is part of ALFA since 1980, but it inherited leading brands, which have enjoyed consumer preference for over 70 years.
The company was originally devoted to producing and marketing processed meats, leading the industry. However, by taking advantage of synergies resulting from its refrigerated distribution network, as of 1994 it ventured into other markets such as yogurt, cheese and ready-to-serve meals.
In addition, Sigma has stretched its activities to the markets of the United States of America, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Peru.
