World Economic Forum recognizes Stellapps by Technology Pioneer award
Stellapps digitizes over 9 million litres of milk each day and impacts 2 million dairy farmers in Indian villages.
Stellapps, the Bengaluru based market leader in the Indian dairy tech space, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers”. Stellapps is a farm to consumer dairy digitization service provider, improving productivity, quality and ensuring end-to-end traceability across the dairy supply chain. It leverages advanced analytics and artificial intelligence through its full-stack IoT platform to enable dairy ecosystem partnerships with financial & insurance institutions, veterinary services, cattle nutrition providers etc. to drive significant value for each stakeholder especially the smallholder farmers. Through its customer-base which includes all major private & co-operative dairies, Stellapps currently digitizes over 9 million litres of milk worth USD 3.4 million each day and directly impacts 2 million dairy farmers in over 28,000 Indian villages.
Stellapps’ award-winning SmartMooTM suite of solutions have enabled the largely unorganized dairy sector in India to embrace the digital revolution. The power of this digital transformation has been most evident during the COVID-enforced lockdown, with Stellapps- enabled milk processors being able to function seamlessly. The ability to procure milk across thousands of centres in a 100% contactless manner allowed the dairies to adhere to sanitary guidelines released by government agencies. By enabling real-time remote monitoring of the procurement operations, Stellapps allowed the dairies to ensure that their customers continued to receive safe, traceable, and high-quality milk. In addition, the tech platform facilitated digital payments and hassle-free credit and insurance to marginal dairy farmers, allowing them to tide over the economic distress brought about by the pandemic.
