Lactalis Canada’s digital hub, Lactalis Labs (LLabs), is expanding its scope as the company looks to invest in new technologies.

The dairy company said it’s beginning to explore Generative AI, a Data Science Centre of Excellence, digital ESG projects and smart Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

“From making daily tasks easier to free up time to large-scale projects that enhance forecasting or enable automation, Lactalis Canada’s investment in digital transformation is about driving innovation and delivering value to our customers – internal and external,” said Mark Taylor, president and CEO of Lactalis Canada, in a statement. “By embracing technology and fostering a culture of continuous improvement, we are positioning ourselves for long-term success in a rapidly evolving digital world.”

LLabs was established in 2021 as an internal intake platform to optimize processes and operational efficiencies. 

“The next iteration of LLabs focuses on building digital solutions that not only serve our internal needs, but can benefit our partners, suppliers and customers across our supply chain,” added  Dave Aeri, VP of information technology. “We invite them to join us in partnership and co-development to solve highly complex problems and achieve mutual efficiencies and synergies that enhance our respective business operations.”
