Sommaire en anglais
The purpose of this study is to provide the Food Safety and Quality Policy Directorate (FSQPD) with a detailed and expert analysis of the costs of traceability. The analysis is based on the assumption that Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is or will be used to implement traceability
systems. In addition, the analysis is restricted to costs of a farm-to-slaughterhouse system, and focuses on three species (cattle, sheep, and hogs).

A variety of information sources, including academic publications, agri-food trade media, online resources, and other published literature, were supplemented by consultation and interviews with stakeholders within agri-food industries and associations. The costs identified throughout the literature were verified to gather an accurate picture of traceability within the Canadian context.
