Yucatan maintains its dynamics of industrial development with the arrival of new investments, such as that of the firm Bunge, which, attracted by the logistical conditions, infrastructure and security offered by the territory, put into operation the plant Molino del Mayab, reaffirming the state as a pole of regional, national and international competitiveness.
