The Quebec Association of Animal and Cereal Nutrition Industries (AQINAC) works to meet consumer demands for food safety, environment, quality, farming conditions and economic benefits.
The association works to promote and introduce better production, agri-environment and social coexistence practices within agricultural and agri-food businesses, in addition to serving, among others, swine producers, poultry, dairy and cereals.
While the first local mills appeared in Quebec in the late 1930’s, it was not until 1961 that the first group of millers formed. First created as the Association for the Development and Protection of the Agricultural Industry in Eastern Canada Inc., in 1963 the organization became the Professional Association of Millers of Quebec.
In the mid-1990’s, the membership was diversified when it welcomed members of the Animal Nutrition Association of Canada’s (ANAC) Quebec division. To reflect this diversity, and mark the integration of cereal traders, the organization changed its name again in 1996 to become the current AQINAC.
