Who We Are
Many of you know us as Vinsight, but starting today, we are Bountiful. We have a new name, logo, color, and fresh new features and insights. Our core values of trust, innovation, and transparency remain the same. We are working hard to empower farmers, build trust through data, and make transparent markets and sustainable agriculture possible.
So allow us to re-introduce ourselves. At Bountiful, we are the next generation of agriculture. We pair long term weather analysis with the latest satellite technology, making complex data simple. Our technology uses machine learning with agronomy, incorporates various data sources to provide more accurate forecasts, and allows us to build even better tools for the agriculture supply chain.
The forecasting techniques of the past are outdated; mistakes lead to high volatility and unstable markets. We take a scientific approach to our analysis, study phenology, and build tools for the industry to support decision-making so you can enter the market with confidence.
By forecasting specialty crops all over the world, we provide users with an accurate production number, which allows for better market making decisions. We cannot do this alone; we need buyers and growers to become a part of this process to make a lasting mark on the supply chain.
We currently forecast almonds and grapes and are in the process of trialing forecasts for California grown walnuts and pistachios.
How We Provide Value
Bountiful is your personal team of data scientists and engineers with a passion for the agriculture industry. While we are data-driven, we understand data does not provide value unless it is actionable. We are here as a resource to create ad-hoc analysis as the industry needs it.
Our specialty crop forecasts take the uncertainty out of analyzing total supply. We take a different approach to forecasting because our insight evolves throughout the growing season. Here are a few examples of how we develop those insights, with regard to almonds:
- We provide 30 years of climate data to give you the expertise of a seasoned member of the almond industry. Chill, growing degree days, and precipitation in past years are easily accessible by growing region and also localized to the ranch for growers. Our database is updated in real-time on an hourly basis too!
- We analyze different stages in the almond phenological cycle so we can better understand the impact on the crop and talk objectively to members of the industry, which will ultimately lead to less market volatility.
- We provide the industry with foresight earlier in the crop year to enhance their understanding of the total supply that goes beyond our forecasts.
- We track how varieties are trending so the supply chain can make data-backed decisions about new plantings and adjust ingredient specifications to support long term growth.
At Bountiful, we are passionate about sustainability. We care about the environment, especially when it can help our growers be more successful and be better stewards of the land that they have lived on for generations. We believe that agriculture can play an essential role in reversing climate change by reducing its emissions to zero and even start sequestering carbon. Stay tuned to learn about tools we are developing to measure sustainability. By quantifying sustainability here at Bountiful, we help growers and buyers to understand the environmental footprint of their activities in a meaningful way. We believe this will enable new ways for our food supply chain to engage in buying and selling specialty crops.
To those who have been with us for a while, thank you for being on this journey; if you are new, welcome. We are looking forward to building a bountiful community together. You can check us out at our new home, bountiful.ag!
