Sigma’s “Excellent Client” Platform continued its program to support clients in the traditional channel (mom-and-pop stores, wholesalers and distributors) through five areas: recognition plans, strategic equipment, comprehensive promotional activity and business development services. Also, 543 mom-and-pops store owners graduated from the Center for the Development of Small Grocery Businesses, which the company supports.
In line with it’s commitment to promoting social responsibility throughout ALFA’s supply chain, in 2015 Nemak developed a Sustainable Code for Suppliers, which seeks to establish mutually beneficial long-term alliances. In 2016, the Code will be distributed to the company’s 400 top suppliers around the world.
In 2015, ALFA’s Sustainability Committee began deployment of a program aimed at its supply chain. It includes creation of a frame of reference and a methodology for learning about suppliers’ practices. This will allow ALFA’s companies to support them with development plans that could be reflected in their performance and economic growth.
