From farm to table all across Canada and the U.S., a strong and sustainable poultry industry is crucial to a thriving economy. When it comes to food manufacturing, it has consistently outperformed many of its other meat counterparts. Poultry has become extremely popular because it is one of the cheapest forms of protein. Chicken, turkey and egg processing are some of the most successful enterprises — with economies in both developed and third-world countries leaning heavily on these sectors.
The North American poultry industry is mostly engaged in the processing and distribution of small game. An example of its most popular activities include meat canning, poultry slaughtering, geese dressing and the manufacturing of luncheon meats. It is important to note that egg production also exists under this umbrella of activity.

We take full control of the implementation process end-to-end, maximizing your profits and helping your organization reach its business goals. Below is a look at some of our most popular RFID Systems and how they can help you.
Asset Tracking RFID System – Equipment Management & Inventory Control
Chicken pluckers, turkey feeds and vacuum packers are just some of the tools found in a poultry processing plant. Food manufacturers spend millions of dollars on high-quality equipment, making the industry very capital intensive. GAO’s RFID technology takes the guesswork out of equipment management and maintenance. Our Asset Tracking RFID System allows organizations to expertly monitor all its valuables, logging customized data as these items move along the warehouse floor. With RFID Tags installed on every asset, our powerful software provides users with the ability to establish maintenance and inspection schedules — allowing your managers to concentrate on workflow efficiency and quality control.
From packaging supplies to final goods, poultry plants harbour mass amounts of inventory all year round. GAO’s RFID solutions come with unique inventory management tactics that many of our competitors do not offer. Track item quantities and trigger re-orders when supplies are running low. Using RFID Tags and Readers, we tailor a solution that is specially engineered to monitor poultry processing activities and its associated inventory.
Work In Progress (WIP) Tracking System – Data Gathering & Document Management
GAO’s technologies make it easy to capture and categorize information. Our Work In Progress (WIP) Tracking System is a valuable addition to any RFID framework. Specifically designed for the manufacturing industry, this system logs data as goods pass through each production stage. Ultimately, it allows managers to pinpoint product glitches and work flow anomalies.
Organizations can then take this data, compile useful reports, and use our RFID solutions for further management of these documents. Compliance documents, payroll stubs and order forms are just some of the items that can be affixed with RFID Tags and then tracked using our system. Track and management your documentation ranging from client information to food safety inspection records so that your files are organized and securely kept and can be provided quickly upon request.
Access Control RFID System – Security Management
Although poultry processing plants are often located in rural areas, this does not mean they do not contain sensitive zones. Adequate water, oil and gas must be easily accessible to keep poultry production running smoothly. Thus, the strategic location of these plants means certain areas are off limits. Our Access Control System can block access to specific areas using our high quality badging tools. Companies can also keep an eye on the wider perimeter by combining GAO’s other solutions, like the Parking Control System.
