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. For information on Checkoff-funded programs, call the Pork Checkoff Service Center at (800) 456-7675 or visit www.pork.org.
