ITC believes that in the strategic context of business, enterprises possess, beyond mere financial resources, the transformational capacity to create game-changing development models by unleashing their power of entrepreneurial vitality, innovation and creativity.
Now rebranded as ITC Life Sciences and Technology Centre, this new beginning highlights its integral part in keeping the Company future-ready and driving its game-changing businesses of the future.
It also reflects the Centre's new mandate- to go beyond supporting and improving ITC's existing products and services and create innovations that not only meet but anticipate consumer needs.
ITC's ambitious agenda of sharpening its competitive edge in an enormously challenging marketplace demands better products that can positively impact consumers' lives, demands solutions that effectively deliver care and wellness to consumers, demands products and services that are world-class and a byword for excellence.
It is here that the Centre will step in - endeavouring to develop path-breaking solutions that blend science, research and technology to enhance not just product experience but overall quality of life. The challenging task of driving science-led product innovation has been carefully addressed by appropriately identifying the required set of core competency areas of science such as Plant Breeding and Genetics, Agronomy, Microbiology, Cell Biology, Genomics, Proteomics, Silviculture and several disciplines of Chemistry.
Presently, the ITC Life Sciences and Technology team has evolved with over world-class scientists and is creating Centres of Excellence in these areas.
The Centre is carrying out research and securing proprietary technologies for the Company's businesses. This state-of-the-art research centre is consistently striving to improve the productivity of several tree species, in order to give attractive land-use alternatives to traditional farmers and wasteland owners.
So far, more than high-yielding, fast-growing and disease resistant 'Bhadrachalam' clones have been produced on a commercial scale, including 23 site-specific clones adapted to problematic soils.
The productivity of these saplings is times that of normal seedlings. ITC's continued focus on crop development has resulted in new varieties of seeds and hybrids in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, which have significantly improved farm yields and helped fulfill the demands of a dynamic global market.
The initial activities related to VAA have already commenced with a focus on Soya. Global Collaboration ITC Life Sciences and Technology Centre has also initiated several research collaborations with globally recognized Centres of Excellence to remain contemporary and fast track its journey towards demonstrating multiple 'proofs of concept'.
These collaborations, covering identified species, are designed in a manner that enables ITC to gain fundamental insights into several technical aspects of plant breeding and genetics and the influence of agro-climatic conditions on the growth of these species.
Such interventions will accelerate ITC's efforts in creating future generations of these crops with greater genetic and trait diversities and leading to significant benefits for the Company's businesses.
Further, these outcomes have a strong potential to contribute towards augmenting the nation's ecological capital as well. Relentless Commitment to Quality Pursuing the Company's relentless commitment to quality, each business is mandated to continuously innovate on processes and systems to deliver superior competitive capabilities.
