World Pork Expo By The Numbers

World Pork Expo continues to be a successful event each year.
Take a look at what the numbers tell us to expect each year.

Strategic Investment Program (SIP) Investors

The National Pork Producers Council and the World Pork Expo thank the SIP Investors for their support to help NPPC take action on issues that threaten pork producers’ freedom to operate responsibly.

As the primary source of funds for NPPC, pork producers participate by voluntarily investing a percentage of the price of each market hog sold. A portion of this investment is distributed as unrestricted funds to state pork producer organizations, allowing them to respond to threats on the local level. The funds are used to strengthen NPPC’s mission to enhance and defend the opportunities for U.S. pork producers at home and abroad. This differs from the mandatory checkoff funds managed by the National Pork Board that are used for pork demand enhancement, educational and research activities. By law, checkoff dollars cannot be used for public policy initiatives or lobbying.
