The National Pork Board has made a significant increase in its budget for international marketing. This comes at a time when the United States is faced with large pork supplies and record exports. Pork Checkoff vice president of international marketing Craig Morris said a successful 2018 is dependent on exports.
The U.S. Meat Export Federation will receive the largest portion of the increased budget for international marketing. USMEF will promote U.S. pork in three categories—established markets, emerging markets and minor markets.
Morris says the National Pork Board has taken a comprehensive and strategic focus on international markets.
