Ignition by TELUS’ dedication to enhanced sustainability
According to the USDA, up to 40% of the total US food supply goes to waste each year. In addition to this, if population growth trends continue, we will experience a shortage of arable land by 2050. Ignition by TELUS exists to combat these statistics, by producing a comprehensive suite of solutions designed to help distributors reduce waste, increase flexibility and agility, and increase visibility across the supply chain.
We empower our partners to achieve their sustainability goals by providing unrivaled insights into shelf life at the warehouse, and we provide visibility from seed to fork in all stages of the distribution cycle so our partners can be confident in the way their food is sourced.
A common use case for our solutions suite is to better manage product shelf life and proof of delivery in order to mitigate spoilage. We have seen our partners immediately reduce inventory spoilage by 15% by implementing our solutions.
Furthermore, we strive to provide better record keeping for food traceability, improved environmental performance through better soil nutrient management and reduced CO2 emissions.
Sustainability is at the core of Ignition by TELUS’ mission statement, and our whole corporate family contributes to that goal. We encourage flexible working styles, and we are all passionate about our goals to create a safer, more sustainable food supply.
The mission of Ignition by TELUS
In the next 5 years Ignition by TELUS will continue to improve the visibility and agility we offer our partners.
Along with complete seed to fork visibility, our cloud-based farm and warehouse management solutions will help our partners reduce waste and reduce emissions. Projected population growth will result in demand exceeding supply and require a 70-75% tech-driven increase in food yield, and Ignition by TELUS strives to be on the forefront of that change.
We strive to provide our customers with the necessary tools to promote improved visibility, agility and responsiveness resulting in reduced waste, increase efficiency, and limited risk. Join us in our mission to enhance sustainability within the cold food and beverage industry!
