AGRI-MARCHÉ | A FORWARD-LOOKING COMPANY

Agri-Marché is part of Groupe Brochu, a leader in the agri-food industry in Quebec. The daily efforts of Agri-Marché’s clients are a source of inspiration for all our team members.

We operate five animal feed mills in Quebec and Ontario, swine and poultry breeding farms, a grain transshipment center and two ruminant feed mills.

Our results-oriented team, driven by a constant desire to innovate, develops effective feed and genetic solutions to guarantee optimal performance of our clients’ livestock. The quality of our relationships with our customers remains a key focus for the Brochu family and employees.

Whether among Agri-Marché managers, consultants or employees, there is one dominant value among our dedicated team - to always offer the best to farm producers.

We are committed to ensuring the profitability and success of our clients by offering innovative solutions and quality products at competitive prices, while relying on skilled and accessible staff.

These forward-looking values have also made us one of the best-managed businesses in Canada, an honour that we share daily with our dedicated staff and loyal customers.

Continuing skills development of our staff is a key component to maintaining the position of leader in animal feed. The third generation of the Brochu family is dedicated to keeping on developing the family business, while preserving the legacy of the previous generations.
 

The history of Agri-Marché is primarily a family history that started when Joseph-Napoléon Brochu went into business over 100 years ago by operating a general store in Saint-Henri-de-Lévis. The close ties he kept at the time with farm producers helped the business continue to thrive. In 1954, he built a mill to offer specialized animal feed products to his loyal customers.

In the early 1960s, his sons took over the family business. Under their guidance, J.N. Brochu continued its growth. It’s at this time that brothers André and Donald acquired mills and farms and expanded their facilities.

These days, Donald’s two sons and daughter and André’s three sons lead Groupe Brochu Inc. and continue to grow their forefathers’ legacy.

Because of Joseph-Napoléon Brochu’s vision and the sense of innovation of his sons and great-children, Agri-Marché is now renowned as a leader in animal feed in Eastern Canada.

Agri-Marché is a company closely involved in the local community. We are happy to support initiatives from the agricultural sector, for example by providing support for the next generation and animal welfare.

We also support other societal challenges we hold dear. This is why we invest locally for the development of the communities where we do business.

We were pleased to partner with L’ADOberge Chaudière-Appalaches, a community organization whose mandate pertains to prevention and assistance for local teenagers experiencing difficulties.

One of the main causes supported by Agri-Marché is United Way, a philanthropic organization that supports a broad network of community organizations throughout Quebec.
The third generation of the Brochu family perpetuates the company’s values and maintains the same commitment as their predecessors for the future of Agri-Marché - to support agricultural companies through innovative animal feed solutions. Since 2008, Patrice Brochu has served as President of Agri-Marché and Jean-Pierre Brochu serves as Vice-President, Innovation and Technological Development. As for Guylaine Brochu, she serves as Vice-President, Corporate Affairs for Groupe Brochu, and is also President of RONA L’Outilleur.
