A history of pride and tradition
We are an Ecuadorian food company that has been contributing to the development of the country since 1909.
In 2008 we consolidated as Moderna Alimentos by merging Molino Electromoderno (Cajabamba), Panificadora Moderna (Quito) and Molinos del Ecuador (Guayaquil). In 2018 we positioned ourselves as leaders in the milling industry in Ecuador.
In response to market challenges and global trends, with a sustainable, high-quality approach, we produce and market wheat-based products and their derivatives to meet the needs of our customers and consumers.
We have clear, structured and transparent corporate governance, with authority and motivation to make ethical and responsible decisions in response to the economic, social and environmental concerns and expectations of the Company’s internal and external stakeholders. This increases levels of perception and trust.
Our main focus is to ensure the Company’s sustainability, identify and manage the risks associated with its operation, as well as to plan, control and improve processes to achieve the projected goals.
Our shareholding structure is composed of domestic and foreign capital, which strengthens our solvency and experience.
