Canada’s Agriculture Day is here, and I’d like to share some thoughts that are on our minds at Sollio Agriculture. Agri-food is one of Canada’s main industries. It helps drive regional economies and provides numerous jobs. It’s also growing. However, it’s important to bear in mind that the life of farmers is becoming increasingly complex: they need to feed the population, remain competitive, keep investing in equipment and technology, be data driven, stay calm about their debt ratios, pollute less and adapt constantly to changing consumer needs.
Ensuring prosperity for local producers
The world seems to be moving at an ever-increasing pace. It’s almost as though the planet has forgotten that it was shaped by the rhythm of the seasons. But as they say, there’s no stopping progress. That’s why at Sollio Agriculture, we believe that we should look to the future, while at the same time relying on our common sense. We’ve come together to create a modern organization at the vanguard of agricultural expertise and technology. We are a group created by and for agricultural producers, one designed to ensure the prosperity of both their families and their communities.
Three sectors that cultivate our ambitions
Comprised of specific services along the agri-food chain, the livestock production sector offers renowned expertise in the poultry, pork, dairy, beef, and equine sectors, as well as in specialized production, such as sheep, goat, organic animal, and veal production.
The crop production sector is the largest supplier of quality seeds, phytosanitary products (with over 1,000 products to offer), and fertilizers that meet the specific needs of agricultural producers in Quebec and eastern Ontario.
The mission of the grain sector is to provide producers with the best conditions to market their yields and to ensure effective procurement for the animal feed, industrial, and export markets. The agri-business division of La Coop fédérée is the grain marketing leader in Quebec with more than 3.8 million metric tonnes transited each year.
Putting the strength of Canada’s largest agricultural network within the reach of every producer.
We are Sollio Agriculture. We support producers in the country to help them maximize their performance while always remembering that they only have 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year.
We bring together passionate people devoted to helping each other and evolving together. These are men and women who are not afraid to work hard and get their hands dirty every day. For them, agriculture is a question of family, community, and what we put on our dinner tables.
We provide producers, co-operatives and partners with practical tools to help them work in a more straightforward and efficient manner. A good example of this is AgConnexion digital solutions, which now helps more than thousands of farms to automate their operations and make better decisions.
To sum up, we’re both close by, and everywhere you need us to be. Our advisors are your advisors; the people who have always been by your side and who know every acre of your region.
