An agreement was signed between Irfan Wahab Khan, CEO Telenor Pakistan, and Khalid Siraj Subhani, President & CEO Engro Corporation to formally initiate the process. The mega project is set to facilitate about 135,000 farmers through 1,600 Engro milk collection centers.

The project envisages secure payment and data collection procedures, by digitizing the traditionally existing methods. For the said purposes, a central server will be hosted by Telenor which will collect data from Engro milk collection centers across the country where special software platform will be set up by Telenor. The data transmission will occur through Telenor network.

As a result of this partnership, dairy farmers could focus more on their harvest.”

“This partnership is of paramount importance for Pakistan’s dairy industry and showcases our commitment to developing the local industry by introducing technological platforms to the rural communities of Pakistan. He further said that the project will result in further development of the dairy innovation ecosystem in the country.

The project will act as a base for further technology-based innovations. In future, Engro plans to provide useful information including real-time weather updates through the project. It also plans to establish a comprehensive cattle fodder and health management system.
