TELUS adds "consumer goods" to agriculture portfolio

by

TELUS is changing the name of its agriculture division to reflect an additional focus of the unit.

TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods will “deliver data insights and a wide range of integrated digital solutions to customers beyond the agricultural sector,” it says.

Through this added focus, TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods says it will now connect participants across the entire value chain, from seed growers to food and consumer goods retailers, driving data-driven business decisions to minimize costs and waste.

The company says combing agriculture with consumer goods will “harmonize data” and deliver real-time “actionable intelligence” to decrease food waste before groceries even reach shopping baskets.

Currently, more than one in five TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods customers are manufacturers of packaged foods, beverages and products that include everything from cosmetics to bakeware and batteries, the company says.

“At TELUS, we are proud to direct our human and technological innovation toward answering some of the most significant social challenges facing our world. This includes ensuring global access to a nutritious food supply that is safe, secure and connected, whilst at the same time, helping to effectively manage the disconcerting amount of goods that never end up in the hands of consumers due to waste, spoilage, quality issues and inaccurate forecasting,” says Darren Entwistle, president and CEO of TELUS.

With a presence on five continents, the TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods team says it now works with six of the 10 top food and beverage suppliers and nine out of the 10 largest agriculture companies in the world.
