Wayne-Sanderson Farms
Retail management software
Several new retailers implemented Tampa, Fla.-based Upshop's AI food
retail management software throughout 2023.
In the summer, De Pere, Wis.-based family- and employee-owned
implements AI technology
By Ryan McCarthy
In 2023, Oakwood, Ga.-based WayneSanderson
Farms signed a multi-year agreement
with biotechnology systems company TARGAN
to integrate its AI-based poultry systems into the
producer's broiler hatcheries nationwide.
" Wayne-Sanderson Farms is excited to team
up with TARGAN on innovative technologies
in our hatcheries, " said Kevin McDaniel,
senior vice president and general manager of
fresh operations at Wayne-Sanderson. " As
we evaluated important advancements to
incorporate into our company, TARGAN rose
to the top of the list. This collaboration will
strengthen our system from live production
through processing. "
Utilizing AI, machine learning and high-speed
vision systems, TARGAN poultry systems
help optimize efficiencies for producers. While
improving hatchery processes, the systems
strengthen global food sustainability and animal
welfare.
TARGAN installed the first units at WayneSanderson's
hatcheries during the third quarter
of 2023.
" We are pleased to have Wayne-Sanderson
Farms, a well-respected company with a long
history and exceptional expertise in the poultry
industry, as our first commercial collaboration, "
said Ramin Karimpour, founder and chief
executive officer at TARGAN. " We have built
a company with notable strengths in both
engineering and biology, and we are confident our
technology will enhance operations and positively
impact the poultry industry for years to come. "
Wayne-Sanderson operates 23 fresh and
further-processing facilities across Alabama,
Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North
Carolina and Texas. Its workforce includes over
26,000 people.
grocer Festival Foods partnered with Upshop to utilize its Fresh SaaS
software, which is designed to help retailers simplify and streamline
inventory management and overall workflow across the fresh perimeter.
" We chose Upshop as our partner because they truly understand our
business, the intricacies of fresh foods and the processes required for
success, " said Ken Wicker, Festival Foods' senior vice president of fresh
foods. " With Upshop, we have the confidence that our operations will
be optimized and ready to meet the demands of our customers. Festival
Foods has invested to build a competitive edge in fresh, and Upshop's
capabilities enable us to scale those advantages. "
Also in the summer, Quincy, Ill.-based retail chain Niemann Foods
began using a new replenishment and inventory system from Upshop
called Magic in 43 stores across Illinois, Missouri and Indiana.
The AI software analyzes data in real time to forecast consumer
demand, calculate the current inventory levels and order the optimal
amount of product, according to Upshop.
The company designed it specifically for grocery stores so that the
data analysis takes into account seasonal trends and store promotions.
" Our approach is a game-changer for grocery retailers who want
to maximize the potential of their stores, " said Shamus Hines, CEO of
Upshop. " Shoppers expect more personalization than ever, no matter
where they shop. Grocers are investing to ensure the right product
is available at the right time and location to ensure they do not miss
a sale, online and in-store. We are proud to work with Niemann's to
optimize inventory and realize store success. "
In September, Byron Center, Mich.-based retailer SpartanNash
expanded its usage of Uphop's Magic application to optimize localized
inventory, bolster efficient merchandising strategies, and improve
sustainability, according to the company.
" At SpartanNash, we're prioritizing technology to enhance our
associate and store guest experience, " said Tom Swanson, SpartanNash
executive VP, corporate retail. " By leveraging advanced analytics to
predict product demand, our associates can spend less time checking
inventory and more time face-to-face helping serve our shoppers. "
What could once only be tracked
roughly, in the aggregate, and on an annual
basis, can now be tracked in real-time, at
the item-level, and with complete accuracy
- a reality that will have a profound
impact on planetary sustainability. "
