  • MARS IN MEXICO

 

Mars began operating in Mexico in 1991. We established our first factory in the Municipality of El Marqués, Querétaro, in 1995, which has become one of the largest and most efficient Mars plants worldwide. In 2001, we acquired the LUCAS® brand, expanding our confectionery portfolio and taking over its Monterrey production site.

Along with our Querétaro and Monterrey plants, we now have a pet food factory in Poncitlán in Jalisco province and a chocolate factory in Montemorelos in Nuevo León.

Mars Mexico is comprised of three business segments that lead their respective markets: Chocolate, Petcare and Wrigley. Our brands include PEDIGREE®, WHISKAS®, SNICKERS®, MILKY WAY®, M&M'S®, LUCAS®, SKWINKLES®, ORBIT® and LIFESAVERS®. Our annual sales are more than $800 million, we employ more than 2,000 Associates and create approximately 12,000 jobs indirectly in our supply chain.

 

PRINCIPLES IN ACTION

Mars Mexico participates in projects to help transform families' lives. For example, through our partnership with Mitz, a nonprofit organization, we donate our waste packaging materials to artisans who use traditional techniques to weave them into bags and accessories. These products are sold in M&M'S® World Stores and online, providing artisans with a steady source of income. See the case study for more details.

 

In 2010, Wrigley Associates launched a volunteering program focused on raising funds to support victims of natural disasters and for welfare initiatives such as orphanages and nursing homes. As of 2010, Wrigley had raised more than $20,000 in monetary and in-kind donations.

Mars Petcare Mexico is committed to ensuring all dogs in Mexico have a home with responsible pet owners. In less than three years, the PEDIGREE® Adoption Drive has made this a reality for more than 8,000 dogs.

Our PEDIGREEN program helps keep Mexico City clean by supplying containers to help dispose of the 300 tonnes of dog waste generated daily in the city. Since November 2004, we have provided more than 100 containers in two of the city's districts, which collect more than 1,200 tonnes of dog waste each year
