Bimbo Canada operates 16 bakeries, 11 distribution centres and employs more than 4,300 associates.
In 2018, Canada Bread changed its name to Bimbo Canada to align to that of our parent company, Grupo Bimbo, one of the world's oldest and largest baking companies, who recently celebrated their 75th anniversary. The decision to change our name to Bimbo Canada was a natural progression for our company.
The term Bimbo [pronounced Beem-bo] was selected by our founders as a play on the popular game Bingo and animated children's movie Bambi. It does not mean anything in Spanish. In colloquial Italian, "bimbo" is short for baby boy (bambino). In Hungarian, it means cocoon. In China, the phoneme used for bread sounds a lot like Bimbo. So clearly, being part of a worldwide company was baked into our identity from the very beginning.
