Mexican company Grupo Bafar opened 100 new CarneMart stores in 2023, to reach a total of 360 units.

Grupo Bafar

This company is one of Mexico‘s leading producers and marketers of animal protein products.

Founded in 1979, Grupo Bafar has established itself as one of the leading producers and distributors of beef, pork and chicken in Mexico.

Its product line includes deli meats, packaged meats, precooked foods, meat cuts, and value-added lines (chicken, pork, beef, and fish products with additional processing such as breading, stuffing, and marinating). 

Grupo Bafar had revenues of Ps. 25.599 billion in 2023, a year-on-year increase of 3 percent.

At the same time, its net income was Ps. 3.806 billion, an increase of 80 percent versus the previous year.


CarneMart stores are a unique format, as they focus on the formal and informal food business sector.

Through an offering of proprietary and third-party products, CarneMart stores seek to target small restaurants and businesses, such as taquerias and hot dog and hamburger stands, among other informal businesses.

Therefore, we believe that CarneMart will continue to be a key component of Grupo Bafar’s future growth, given that the majority of the foodservice market is comprised of these small businesses. 

Modern retailers offer products that are more expensive and can be small for these service providers. 

CarneMart offers a range of products that small vendors need, as they combine product sizes and offer them in the right locations so that they can supply their needs, either on a weekly or even daily basis. 

Small formal and informal foodservice businesses, including grocery stores, are an important segment that has historically been underserved by institutional retailers. 

Among our most recognized brands are Sabori, Parma, Bafar and Burr, Grillers and Guisy.
