Fueling growth and innovation for industry pioneers.
In an industry where margins are increasingly tight and an economy where raw material prices are extremely volatile, Azteca selected FULLSTEP to review the internal procurement function and develop an improvement plan to reduce and control operating and purchasing costs.
Pioneer in the refrigerated tortilla business, Azteca developed the first refrigerated tortilla using fewer preservatives, while maintaining strict quality control.

The implementation of FULLSTEP’s solution generated significant savings for us without throwing anything or anyone out the window. FULLSTEP gave us the tools necessary to efficiently negotiate with vendors while increasing our attention on key characteristics of the supplied goods. Our visibility on the markets has never been better, and we now have more leverage and better information to build more constructive relationships with our suppliers.
