Company history[]

Formation of the gro[]

 

In 1916, Fábrica de Galletas y Confites—a company making biscuits (cookies and crackers) and confectionery—was set  in Medellin, Colombia.[2] In 1925, the company changed its name to Fábrica de Galletas Noel S.A. and again in 1999 to Compañía de Galletas Noel S.A. In 1920, a -processing company under the name of Compañía Nacional de s Cruz Roja was founded and later changed its name to Compañía Nacional de s, S.A. In 1933 this  company bought an interest in the biscuit company paving the way for the formation of the conglomerate. From 1933 to 1958, the gro continued to consolidate its distribution network resulting in strengthened national presence and corporate image.[2]

 

In the business of coffee[]

 

In 1933 the "Sello Rojo" (EN: Red Label) brand was created when the company entered the coffee business.[2] In 1950, with the boom of the coffee industry, Compañía Colombiana de Café S.A.- Colcafé, was created and soon become an important Colombian export company. The first export of any company of the gro was in 1961—coffee to Japan.[2]

 

International expansion[]

 

In 1993, the confectionery company, Compañía Dulces de Colombia S.A. was set . In 1995, the Organization’s trading companies were established abroad forming what is known today as the Cordialsa network, first in Ecuador and second in Venezuela. The company also made its first investment abroad and expanded its meat-processing business with Industrias Alimenticias Hermo de Venezuela S.A.[2] In 1999, the Organization spun off two of its companies, Noel and Zenú.

 

In 2003, the holding company Inversiones Nacional de s S.A. came into being, with important interests in  and coffee businesses as well as the Organization’s food investment company Inveralimenticias (that has holdings in the meat, cookie and confectionery business). In 2004, the organization began expanding into Central America and the Caribbean through the purchase of Nestle’s cookie and  plants in Costa Rica. In 2006, the Organization changed its name to Gro Nacional de s S.A. On 1 February 2007, Gro Nacional de s purchased Peruvian company Good Foods S.A. and the Winter's brand for US$36 million through its Peruvian subsidiary Compañía Nacional de s de Perú S.A..[6]

On 31 March 2011 the company changed its name to Gro Nutresa in a move made to emphasize the diversity of its products that now includes pasta and cold cuts.[1]

The slogan for Chocopunch, targeting juveniles, is "Chocopunch! Punch! Punch!" (which has the same meaning in both Spanish and English). The name Chocopunch has a double meaning in Spanish, choco is short for , of course, but the word chocó means "surprise" or "shock," a powerful word in advertising. A key promotional aspect of Chocopunch over the years has been, packaged with the product, colorful plastic cucharitas (mini spoons), in the shapes of different characters from movies, television, and video games, that are collected like prizes. Several licensed series of mini spoons have been introduced including: Bakugan Battle Brawlers (2011), Barney (TV), Choko (Winter's brand cartoon character),[4] Digimon, Dinos (2003),[5] Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Z second series (2011), two different series of El Chavo (TV), Garfield, La Era de Hielo 3 (2009, Ice Age 3, film),[6] Looney Tunes, The Mask (film), Patacloun, Pokémon, Popeye (1992–93),[7] Power Rangers, Rugrats, Spider-Man 3 (film), SpongeBob SquarePants, Los Caballeros del Zodiaco (Saint Seiya),[8] Star Wars (film), Tengo 2, and Tom and Jerry.[9]

The Gro goes back to early part of the 20th Century when Colombia´s industrial development began with the founding of various companies which today have become symbols of the country´s economy. It was here in 1920 that the Gro´s banner  company, Compañía Nacional de s Cruz Roja was founded, which years later changed its name to Compañía Nacional de s S.A.

 

In 1916, thanks to the initiative of a gro of local businessmen, the cookie company Fábrica de Galletas y Confites was founded in 1925. It later became Fábrica de Galletas Noel and since 1999 has been known as Compañía de Galletas Noel S.A. In 1933, Compañía Nacional de s became a shareholder of this cookie company, thereby giving rise to a business relationship which would form the cornerstone of today´s food manufacturing holding, Gro Nutresa S.A.

 

 

Gro Nacional de s S.A. going forward, will be Gro Nutresa S.A.

 

As a gro, we are more than s; we participate in six food categories: Cold Cuts, Biscuits, s, Coffee, Ice Cream and Pasta.  Our previous name limited our recognition in the market and the general public, naming only one of our categories.

We want to avoid confusión between the parent comany and one of its subsidiaries; Compañía Nacional de s, will not change its name.

The entities that perform transversal tasks will also take on the Nutresa name: Cordialsa Colombia, will be called Comercial Nutresa; Servicios Nacional de s will be Servicios Nutresa; and Fundación Gro Nacional de s will be Fundación Gro Nutresa.

The rest of the companies in the Gro, in Colombia and in the Region, will continue with their current names.  Our brands will remain intact.

Medellin – March 31 2011. From now on we will be Gro Nutresa, a name that expresses what we are and what we do, a food gro with participation in six lines of business: Cold Cuts, Biscuits, s, Coffee, Ice Cream and Pasta, made  of 44 companies with direct presence in 12 countries in America and exports to 74 countries in the world.

 

“We chose Nutresa because it allows us to position the organization clearly and distinctively according to what we are and what we do.  It’s a name directly associated with nutrition and it’s inclusive of all the categories in which we participate.  It’s a name for the future; it’s alligned with industry trends and with our objectives” expressed Carlos Enrique Piedrahita, Gro Nutresa’s CEO.

 

The name was chosen out of a base of 64 options through a profesional process that included interviews and research.  There was a thorough process of elimination to finally reach the one that best represents us.

 

We are oriented to providing reliable nutritious solutions for the future through a constant bet on innovation and entrepreneurship, which traduce into a committed, progressive, socially responsible gro.

 

A gro in permanent evolution

 

Our 2005-2015 multilatina vision establishes that together we will triple our food business, providing quality of life to the consumer with products that satisfy his aspirations of wellbeing, nutrition and pleasure.

Performance figures

The Gro’s size, growth and internationalization, are clearly reflected in the evolution of its key figures between 2000 and 2010:

 

Indicator 2000 2010 CAGR Grow Factor

Total sales 650.672 4.458.858 21,22% 6,9

International sales 45 645 30,51% 14,3

EBITDA 59.180 538.166 24,70% 9,1

Market cap. 467.959 11.791.846 38,08% 25,2

figures in millions of pesos except international sales in millions of dollars

Growth and projection

 

The change in the name does not implicate any modification in the current business strategy.  We will continue our work to develop and consolidate the markets in the strategic region, integrated by the Andean countries, Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico and the United States, in which we reach more than 450.000 clients through our own distribution network.

 

Gro Nutresa maintains the same operating structure of six business units: Cold Cuts, Biscuits, s, Coffee, Ice Cream and Pasta, its sales and distribution networks in Colombia and abroad, its shared services center and its non-for-profit organization.

Entities that change name

The entities that perform transversal tasks will also take on the Nutresa name:

Cordialsa Colombia, the unified sales and distribution platform for all dry products in Colombia -biscuits, s, coffee and pasta- will be called Comercial Nutresa.

Servicios Nacional de s, the shared services center that provides administrative, financial, legal, sourcing and technology sport for the Gro’s companies, will be know, from now on, as Servicios Nutresa.

And the Gro Nacional de s Foundation, from this day on Gro Nutresa Foundation, will continue  continuará coordinating social responsibility projects as part of our sustainable development activities.

Our companies and brands will be unchanged

The rest of the subsidiaries will not change name. Compañía Nacional de s, Noel, Zenú, Colcafé, Doria and Meals de Colombia, as well as the others that compose the business units in Colombia and the region, will retain the names with which they are known today.

Our food portfolio has leading brands with ample recognition and market vale, in Colombia and abroad.  These will remain intact and will continue moving forward in alignment with client needs and consumer trends.

Nutresa: we harvest wellbeing, nutrition and pleasure.
