The National Pork Board is responsible for conducting Checkoff-funded research, promotion and consumer information projects and for communicating with pork producers and the public. Through a legislative national Pork Checkoff, pork producers invest $0.40 for each $100 value of pigs sold. Importers of pork products contribute a like amount based on a formula. The Pork Checkoff funds national and state programs, including advertising, consumer information, retail and foodservice marketing, export market promotion, production improvement, technology, swine health, pork safety and environmental management.
