National Pork Producers Council

National Pork Producers Council

Background

The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is a Washington, DC-based trade body representing the US pork industry. The NPPC represents “the federal and global interests” of over 60,000 pork producers in 42 states across the US and has an annual revenue of around $15 million. [1]

The NPPC “fights for reasonable federal legislation and regulations”, “maintains and develops export market opportunities” and “protects producers’ livelihoods”, according to its website. It focuses particularly on the policy areas of “agriculture and industry, animal well-being and food safety, environment and energy, and international trade”. [2]

The NPPC is a member of “Farmers for a Sustainable Future” (FSF), an industry alliance formed by major US agricultural trade bodies including the American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in February 2020. [3]

The group has been reluctant to refer to human-caused climate change, instead citing “climatic events.” At a press conference in February 2020, the NPPC’s Vice President for Public Affairs and Counsel, Michael Formica, refused to say whether he believed climate change was man-made. [4]

During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the NPPC supported the Responding to Epidemic Losses and Investing in the Economic Future (RELIEF) for Producers Act, brought forward by Republican Senators James Inhofe, Joni Ernst, Chuck Grassley and Thom Tillis. [5]

Inhofe is an outspoken climate science denier who once compared the US Environmental Protection Agency to the Gestapo and has received over $2 million in donations from the oil and gas industry. Iowa Senator Ernst has pledged to protect agri-business interests from “undue regulatory burdens,” and credited the Koch Family network of libertarian funders with launching her political career. [6], [7], [8]

In 2009, the NPPC lobbied against the Waxman-Markey Bill, an Act put forward by two Democratic Representatives Henry Waxman and Edward Markey proposing to cut emissions by introducing a “cap and trade” system. [9]

The NPPC spent $1.5 million on lobbying in 2019 and made $432,000 worth of political contributions between 2017-2018, 71 percent of which went to Republican candidates. It ranks among the top 10 percent of spenders for both lobbying and political contributions in the US, according to OpenSecrets data. [10], [11]

The NPPC has a political action committee, PorkPAC, which supports candidates “whose views coincide” with the interests of the industry. Top recipients of PorkPAC funds in 2019-2020 included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Californian Congressman Devin Nunes and Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. [12], [13], [14]

The NPPC runs an annual trade conference which hosts “more than 20,000 producers and pork professionals” each year, and raised $3 million for the organisation in 2018. Chemicals giant DuPont was among companies due to sponsor its 2020 event, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [15], [16]

The NPPC’s President in 2020 was Howard AV Roth, owner of Wisconsin-based Roth Feeder Pig Inc. [17]

Lobbying on a USUK trade deal

The NPPC has been vocal about its demands for a USUK trade deal, for which talks officially began in May 2020. A dedicated page on the USUK trade deal on its website states: [18]

NPPC would only support a U.S.-U.K. free trade agreement if the U.K. is willing to eliminate all tariff and non-tariff barriers and embrace Codex and other international production standards.” [19]

Codex, short for “Codex Alimentarius” is the set of international food standards used by the World Trade Organisation to manage disputes between countries and has been criticised by campaigners for setting significantly lower standards than the EU on key issues including permitted levels of pesticides, animal food additives and growth hormones. In November 2019, the US joined countries including India and Brazil in complaining to the WTO about an EU decision to set tighter standards than Codex on a number of pesticides, including the potential carcinogen, buprofezin. [20], [21], [22], [23], [24], [25]

In January 2019, the NPPC was one of 24 US industry bodies and other associated groups to give evidence to the USUK Trade Hearing hosted by the US Trade Representative agency. Other witnesses included major trade bodies the National Chicken Council and the American Chemistry Council, as well as the UK thinktank the Institute of Economic Affairs. [26], [27]

NPPC Chairman Craig Thorn told the hearing one of its central demands for a USUK trade deal is the elimination of the current UK ban on ractopamine, a food additive prohibited in over 160 countries over food safety and animal welfare concerns. Ractopamine has been banned in the UK and EU countries since 1996. It is fed to an estimated 60-90 percent of US pigs and has been found to cause trembling, an inability to walk and broken bones in livestock. [28], [29], [30], [31]

Another central NPPC demand is for the end of a UK requirement on pork to be tested for the parasite trichinae, which the UK’s Food Standards Agency states can cause fever, muscle pain and headaches, and “affect vital organs and even lead to death” when passed on to humans. [28], [32]

Stance on Climate Change

The NPPC’s website page on environment and energy states: 

Pork producers…are committed to conserving energy and helping reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. The industry supports the development and use of alternative and renewable fuels but seeks a level playing field for producers to compete for finite resources.” [33]

February 19, 2020

At the launch of “Farmers for a Sustainable Future,” the NPPC’s Vice President for Public Affairs and Counsel, Michael Formica, refused to say whether climate change was human-caused. In answer to a question from a reporter, Formica stated: 

“I don’t know whether it’s human induced or naturally induced…

“…If the climate is changing, we need to address the fact that it’s changing, and ultimately we all need to become more efficient, and that’s the best way to address all of these issues….

“The cause of the challenge is sort of irrelevant to my members. They just want to know what the goal is we have to meet and tell me what the target is.”

Journalists noted a reluctance amongst FSF members, including the American Farm Bureau Federation, to use the term “climate change” at the launch event. [4]

January 17, 2019

The NPPC questioned the claim, which has been made by the UN’s International Panel Climate on Change, that a reduction in meat consumption is needed to prevent dangerous levels of climate change. Responding to a report by the EAT-Lancet Commission, a collaboration between the EAT non-profit and the Lancet medical journal, the NPPC stated: [34], [35], [36]

The EAT-Lancet report issued today calling for drastic cuts in meat, dairy and egg consumption to promote a healthier diet and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) is based on dubious science and is irresponsible… [35]

….Modern U.S. livestock agriculture is a tremendous example of how the world can produce the nutritious, safe food people need while contributing less GHGs per calorie of food…[35]

…to address sustainability and undernourishment,” then NPPC President Jim Heimerl said,… “maybe the report’s authors should call on the European Union to drop its Draconian ‘precautionary principle’ that all-but prevents the use of new technologies and modern production practices. It’s those kinds of restrictions that are forcing farmers around the world to forego using scientifically proved technologies that produce more food and in a more environmentally friendly way.” [35]

Funding

The NPPC’s total revenue in 2018 was $15.8 million, of which $12 million came from “contributions and grants” and $2 million from membership fees. Other significant sources of funding included its annual trade exhibition, which raised $3 million in 2018.

In 2006, the National Pork Board (NPB), a US Department of Agriculture body, signed an agreement to pay the National Pork Producers Council $3 million a year over twenty years for use of the advertising trademark “the other white meat”. Small pork farmers have criticised the arrangement for channelling public funds to the NPPC for lobbying on behalf of the NPB, which is prohibited from using money for these purposes. The “other white meat” slogan was retired in 2011 but the NPPC continues to receive $3 million annually. [37]

NPPC Political Action Committee (PAC)

The NPPC also receives donations through its political action committee, PorkPAC, which raised $537,011 in 2019-2020. Donors to PorkPAC in that time period included individuals from the following companies: [12], [38]

  •        Roth Feeder Pig Inc
  •        Brown Winick
  •        Iowa Select Farms
  •        Nutriquest
  •        A&J Farms
  •        Hog Slats

(Data from 990 forms).

Dr Howard Hill, a former Veterinarian and Board Member of the NPPC, was a member of Donald Trump’s leadership council during the Presidential Election in 2016. The council consisted of industry representatives who advised the presidential candidate on issues including agriculture and energy. [58]

Actions

Responding to a video campaign launched by the RSPCA which aimed to highlight the difference in animal welfare and health and safety standards in the UK and US, and criticised the use of cramped conditions for US pigs raised in “sow stalls,” Jim Monroe, Assistant Vice-President at the National Pork Producers Council said:

Over the last 10 years, the United States, on average, has been the top exporter of pork in the world. In any given year, the US pork industry ships products to more than 100 countries.

That’s because we produce the safest, most nutritious and most affordable pork in the world. We do so while maintaining the highest standards of animal welfare. Any characterization to the contrary is preposterous.

NPPC supports a stronger trade relationship with the United Kingdom, but will only support a USUK free trade agreement if the UK is willing to eliminate all tariff and non-tariff barriers and embrace Codex and other international production standards.” [59]

January 29, 2019

The NPPC gave evidence at the US Trade Representative’s public hearing on “negotiating objectives for a USUK Agreement”, at which representatives from US industries and related bodies outlined their demands for the trade talks between the two countries. [26]

The NPPC was represented at the hearing by lobbyist Craig Thorn, who told trade officials that Brexit offered a “historic opportunity” for the US pork industry and called on the US government to negotiate a deal that eliminated what it called “high tariffs” and “sanitary and phytosanitary” regulations, including a ban on the food additive ractopamine and mandatory testing for the parasite trichinae. [26]

Thorn is a Partner at consultancy DTB Associates and has represented DTB clients including MSD Animal Health, Bayer CropScience and Fonterra Cooperative Group, according to the EU Transparency Register. Thorn also worked for the US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agriculture Service. [60], [61]

June 2018, 2009

The NPPC lobbied against the “Waxman-Markey Bill”, legislation that proposed to reduce US emissions by 80 percent by 2050 by introducing a cap and trade system. In a letter to House Agriculture Chairman, Collin Peterson, and Congressman, Frank Lucas, the NPPC argued that the Bill would unfairly “raise the cost of production” and drive producers into “financial despair”. [9][62]

After being approved in the House of Representatives on June 26 2009, the Bill represented the “first time either house of Congress had approved a bill meant to curb the heat-trapping gases scientists have linked to climate change”. However, the Bill failed to progress to the senate, hampered by numerous factors including the number of concessions made to industry, an unfavourable economic climate and Republican opposition. [63], [64]

  • Farmers for a Sustainable Future – The NPPC is a member of “Farmers for a Sustainable Future” (FSF), an industry alliance formed by US agricultural trade bodies including the American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in February 2020. The FSF has said it aims to advance “successful sustainable practices” and ensure “accurate data based on sound science is shared with policymakers, the media and the public.” At their February launch event, the  group avoided references to human-caused climate change, instead referring to “climatic events.” [65][3], [4]

In 2019-2020 the NPPC donated to the following PACs through PorkPAC, including $5,000 to the Trump-supporting Making America Prosperous:

  •        Blue Dog PAC
  •        Committee for Hispanic Causes-BOLD PAC    
  •        New Democrat Coalition
