Strategic Investment Program

The Strategic Investment Program (SIP) is the primary source of funds for the National Pork Producers Council. SIP allows NPPC and the NPPC190x100Wisconsin Pork Association to:
  • Fight for reasonable legislation and regulation
  • Develop revenue and market opportunities
  • Proactively address issues of industry and consumer concern
The program was started to ensure 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. To participate, producers agree to contribute $.10/$100 of market value. A significant share of the program dollars are returned to support the state organization.  The ability to use these unrestricted funds better equips WPA and NPPC to respond to today’s threats on the state and national level.
Producers may become an SIP investor by filling out the Wisconsin Pork Association membership form and selecting the “SIP” option. If you have any questions or would like more information on the SIP program, contact the WPA office at 608-723-7551
