The company SanLucar, producer and distributor of premium quality fruit and vegetables, has chosen Hispatec Agrointeligencia as a technological partner to carry out the digital transformation of its agricultural operations. The company with headquarters in Valencia has its own production in countries such as South Africa, Tunisia, Spain, Ecuador, or Morocco, where it currently grows grapes, citrus fruits, stone fruit, tomatoes, berries, and bananas.
Hispatec’s technology will allow the digital management of all SanLucar’s agronomic processes in mobility. In this way, the producing company will be able to plan its activities and will know in real time the situation of its cultivation and harvest operations in any of its farms, allowing it to carry out a more sustainable allocation of resources, optimizing operations and reducing food waste.
The digital tools that are part of the project where SanLucar and Hispatec Agrointeligencia join forces are made up of labor management systems, control of field tasks, applied inputs, harvest quality control and management of all agronomic processes. These operational systems are complemented by decision-making systems, through which the SanLucar management team has real-time information in reference to the harvest, production costs, productivity or performance based on different variables.
“As a multinational company with productive farms spread over three continents, at SanLucar we needed to have a single source of information that would allow us to remotely and in real time monitor the operations of all our farms internationally. Through our cooperation with Hispatec we have managed to harmonize data on our crops and have an up-to-date vision in each of our offices”, says Fernando Fernández, IT Director of SanLucar.
José Luis Molina, CEO of Hispatec Agrointeligencia, wanted to highlight that “the focus of all the companies that operate in the sector is the sustainability of our operations understood from its three dimensions: economic, social and environmental. We know that it is difficult to improve what is not measured and that is exactly what digital technology allows, to measure with precision and clearly show the paths of evolution of agricultural operations. We are very happy to share this vision of the future of agriculture with a leading company like SanLucar.”
