Using AI to detect food quality
ProfilePrint, a Singapore-based Artifical Intelligence- (AI) driven solutions company, has signed commercial contracts to deploy its technology in three of Brazil’s largest food companies — Louis Dreyfus Company Brasil, Olam Agrícola Ltda (Brazil) and Sucafina Brasil. ProfilePrint’s AI solutions aim to ascertain and predict the quality and profile of food ingredients.
Though Latin America is responsible for 16% of total global exports of food and agricultural products, it faces the challenge of not being able to ascertain the quality of the food ingredients that are produced and traded due to varying production conditions across high-tech farms and small producers. The ProfilePrint solution is designed to address this issue using an AI technology that analyses food ingredients, such as coffee, cocoa, grains, sugar and juices, with a portable analyser and a software platform in just a few seconds. The technology can help to speed up the assessment process and reduce the sales cycle.
The commercial contracts with Louis Dreyfus Company Brasil, Olam Agrícola Ltda (Brazil) and Sucafina Brasil were signed at the Agrifood Tech Networking Reception in February.
“We are delighted to hear of ProfilePrint’s entrance into Brazil, one of the world’s largest agrifood economies. The Singapore Embassy and Enterprise Singapore will continue to support the strengthening of technology collaboration and trade relations between the two countries,” said Desmond Ng, the Head of Mission of the Embassy of Singapore in Brazil, who witnessed the signing.
“We are excited to see ProfilePrint establishing their footprint in Brazil and across Latin America, coming from a country where less than 1% of our land is used for agriculture, ProfilePrint developed a solution to empower agribusinesses across the supply chain to be more effective and efficient,” said Josiah Choy, the Regional Director for Enterprise Singapore (South America), who also witnessed the signing.
According to Alan Lai, CEO and founder of ProfilePrint, the solution could help to advance agribusinesses across the entire chain in Brazil, starting with coffee and cocoa. Both producers and buyers will be able to ascertain the quality of the crop and have access to the ProfilePrint online report, minimising the need to send samples. This will contribute to the reduction of carbon footprints. The solution will also be able to propose blends based on tailored flavour requirements for clients.
