Develop revenue and market opportunities
Protect your livelihood
How It Started
The program started to ensure that adequate funding is available for critical programs focused on public policy, including legislative and regulatory issues management, as well as trade issues. As an investor, you will have a voice in NPPC policy development.
What’s In It For YOU?
Being involved with SIP gives you a chance to make a difference when decisions are made regarding the future of the U.S. pork industry. A significant share of the money from the program is returned to support state organizations. The ability to use these unrestricted, non-checkoff funds better equips state organizations and NPPC to respond to today’s threats on the state and national levels. Producers agree to contribute 0.15/$100 of market value. Contract growers pay 0.15/$100 of gross contract value. Employees can pay $150/year.
