Top global sugar producer projects up to $5 million benefit using C3 Generative AIREDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Sep 18, 2023 – C3 AI (NYSE: AI), the Enterprise AI application software company, today announced that Pantaleon — the top sugar producer in Central America — has expanded its commitment with C3 AI by deploying C3 Generative AI to improve business efficiencies. Pantaleon first became a customer in early 2023 when it purchased two pilot applications — C3 AI Production Schedule Optimization and C3 AI Process Optimization. “Together we are demonstrating the unmatched economic value of combining 170-years of industry knowledge with enterprise AI.”As part of its transformation, the Guatemala-based company has been using C3 AI Production Schedule Optimization to plan their sugar cane harvesting process and C3 AI Process Optimization to maximize sugar production. These applications — including C3 Generative AI — are running on Google Cloud and leveraging Google Cloud’s services and solutions at scale. In addition, Pantaleon is using C3 Generative AI to optimize the process to develop pricing outlooks; these are a crucial function for the sugar producer, as 80% of production is pre-sold before the harvest season begins.
