Mission and services

Serving Québec businesses and communities with a set of complementary competencies and responsibilities

Reflecting its mission, the organization is made up of the following services:

  • General management is responsible for providing support to the Board and expert committees, for activities concerned with human, financial and material resources, and functions concerned with general business.
  • The reserved designation and added-value claims recognition and maintenance service assists designation projects and the processing of applications for recognition. It sets the conditions for examining applications for recognition of a designation by producing various regulations and reference documents.
  • The public and industry information service provides information to consumers, businesses and the various partners.
  • The surveillance service monitors the use of reserved designations and added-value claims by businesses that market agricultural or food products and in stores where they are sold.
  • Accreditation of certification bodies is handled by the Comité d’Accréditation en Évaluation de la Qualité (CAEQ), which is responsible both for evaluating certification bodies seeking accreditation and for monitoring the certification activities of those that are accredited.
  • The information systems maintenance service handles the dissemination of information about businesses holding certification for products bearing a reserved designation or using an added-value claim.

All services are supported by the Board and the expert committees.
