Agri-Traçabilité International, a subsidiary of Agri-Traçabilité Québec

Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) has a worldwide reputation for its expertise and achievements regarding the permanent identification and traceability of agricultural products.

In 2001, Agri-Traçabilité Québec designed a complete mandatory permanent RFID identification and traceability program for Quebec's dairy and beef industries in less than five (5) months. The system included the completion of an efficient multi-specie database and:
Cow through fence
  • the registration of over 16,000 breeders;
  • the identification of over 22,000 premises;
  • the processing of their tag orders;
  • and the RFID identification and registration of over 1.2 million animals.
Sheep and Lamb
In 2004, the system and methodology was extended to Quebec's ovine industry and, in 2009, to the cervid sector. As of today:

  • 26,500 registered producers;
  • 29,500 identified premises;
  • more than 10,200,000 registered animals;
  • 36,000,000 animal movements between premises;
  • over 10,000,000 million RFID identifiers sold.
The system is reliable and over the course of the next few years, traceability will be implemented in many other agri-food sectors such as the poultry and pork sectors.

With the many projects it has carried out since its creation in 2001, Agri-Traçabilité Québec has developed a high-level of expertise in the permanent identification and traceability of agricultural products: this expertise is now offered through its subsidiary, Agri-Traçabilité International.
