TELUS is changing the name of its agriculture unit to TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods as a signal of its commitment to deliver data insights and a wide range of integrated digital solutions to customers beyond the agricultural sector.
Rapidly growing its assets and capabilities since its launch nearly two years ago, the newly rebranded unit is now well positioned to connect participants across the entire value chain, from seed growers to food and consumer goods retailers, and enable them to make sound, agile, data-driven business decisions to minimize costs and waste.
Leveraging the latest technology, the industry expertise of its global team, artificial intelligence and TELUS’ Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities, TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods aims to vastly improve the way food and other goods are produced, distributed and consumed.
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.
“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,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS.
“Through our expanded TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods business, our team is committed to leveraging our technology-driven efforts to optimize the production of food and consumer goods in a manner that is more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Together, we are caring for the planet for future generations, and improving outcomes for citizens and families around the world.”
