Food system intelligence innovator Trellis supports Pernod Ricard Winemakers’ business and supply chain operations by providing accurate grape yield, quality, harvest timing and procurement cost prediction across Australia and New Zealand.

Pernod Ricard Winemakers expanded the deployment of Trellis across its grape supply network throughout New Zealand and Australia.

“Trellis empowers us to make better, faster decisions by dynamically foreseeing potential risks that could negatively impact our bottom line, as well as providing extra lead time to manage operational challenges. Its advanced AI capabilities will also help our team anticipate fluctuations in supply so we can properly allocate resources,” said Brett McKinnon, chief operations officer at Pernod Ricard Winemakers. “We expect Trellis to help us significantly lower our procurement costs and overall production costs, while also ensuring a much more efficient harvest.”

AI-powered cloud platform

Since 2017, Trellis has worked with food and beverage producers, as well as their upstream suppliers, to identify inefficiencies and provide the real-time data insights needed to strategically transform their organisations.

Its AI-powered cloud platform integrates live data from a myriad of dynamic sources throughout the entire food and beverage supply chain to accurately predict quality, yield, timing of harvest and associated expenses to fully optimise unit cost and resources across the entire agrifood value chain.

Offering rapid data integration, enrichment and development of predictive AI models, desktop and mobile applications will be available to Pernod Ricard Winemakers viticulture, harvest operation, supply chain, procurement, and wine production teams later this month.
