The National Pork Board is composed of 15 pork producers nominated by the National Pork Producers Delegate Body, which is made up of 155 producer and importer members.
The program was created and is administered under the authority of the Pork Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act of 1985. It became effective Sept. 5, 1986, when the Pork Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Order was implemented. Assessments began Nov. 1, 1986.
Since 1966, Congress has authorized the development of industry-funded research and promotion boards to provide a framework for agricultural industries to pool their resources and combine efforts to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets and conduct important research and promotion activities. AMS provides oversight to 22 boards, paid for by industry assessments, which helps ensure fiscal accountability and program integrity.
