Analysis of the internationalization process in an emerging market company: The case of BACHOCO

The agricultural sector in Mexico is a sub-study area. The objective of this work is to describe the internationalization process of Industrias BACHOCO (BACHOCO), a leading company in the Mexican poultry sector. In order to achieve this objective, a case study was carried out on the internationalization process that the company followed, using the classical theories that explain why companies expand beyond their borders: the eclectic paradigm and the Uppsala model. Main results suggest that BACHOCO is a company that fits more appropriately the Uppsala model, as its internationalization has been gradual and sequential, however, although to a lesser extent it has some traits of the Eclectic Paradigm, proposed by Dunning. Additionally, BACHOCO is a company that does not have a high degree of internationalization yet.

The Main Institutional and Cultural Variables which Are Considered in the Involvement of Internationalization of Multinational Firms

This paper is aimed to analyze some of the institutional and cultural implications on internationalization analysis of multinational firms. The analysis begins questioning what the main institutional and cultural variables are considered in the involvement of internationalization of multinational firms. To answer this question, firstly it is reviewed the literature on internationalization of multinational firms based on institutional and cultural frameworks to find the main research tendencies. Secondly, these institutional and cultural variables are analyzed to integrate findings. Considering some findings of the reviewed literature on institutionalism and culture, this paper centers the analysis on the implications of intangible capital, learning and innovation on multinational firms. This paper also explores a more dynamic and multivariable approach to organizational culture to explain the complexities of multicultural distributed teams and contextual factors on performance of multinational firms. While doing so, the paper reviews the involvement of organizational culture in internationalization processes of multinational firms centered on strategic alliances and joint ventures and the creation of a third culture of management and leadership styles. Finally, it is discussed and concluded the need to design a better institutional and cultural balance among the development of a local-regional transformation, convergence and governance.
