Published August 2022
During the 7th Congreso Empresarial Colombiano (Colombian Business Congress) that took place last week in Cartagena, ANDI and Revista Dinero announced that Grupo Nutresa occupied, for the first time since its publication six years ago, the first position in the Innovación Empresarial Ranking 2022, a study that tracks the innovative dynamics of the main companies in the country with the objective of making visible their efforts, behavior and achievements in the national and international market.
The Innovación Empresarial Ranking (Business Innovation Ranking) is an initiative that brings together small, medium and big companies. This year, 347 companies from 17 economic sectors participated, with presence in 25 departments of the country, and which employ more than 25,400 people full time in science, technology and innovation activities.
Likewise, these companies invested COP 16 billion (More than USD 3 billion) in activities associated with science, technology and innovation, which corresponds to approximately 6% of their total sales in 2021. This investment has registered a 50% increase since the ranking was first published in 2016.
Grupo Nutresa had already ranked third in this ranking in 2021 and second in 2020. “Innovation, in addition to being a business practice that helps companies generate new products and services to give value to customers, has become a powerful tool to respond to the great social and environmental challenges we have in the country.” Daniela Rico, ANDI Innovation Coordinator.
“At Grupo Nutresa, research and effective innovation continue to be great enablers for the generation of value and competitiveness of the Organization. That is why we thank each of the people who, from their role, contribute to innovation: the Innovation Promoters, the Innovation Leaders and, in general, all those who drive this capacity with commitment and passion. This recognition is a clear reflection of their efforts and for this we are very proud. We invite you all to continue building a better world where development is for everyone, with a high dose of innovation.” Mario Alberto Niño, VP Innovation and Nutrition, Grupo Nutresa.
