SIP Membership (Strategic Investment Program)
The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is funded by voluntary contributions from pork producers and allied industry into the Strategic Investment Program (SIP). To be a member of NPPC, pork producers agree to contribute 10 cents per $100 in value on all pigs marketed during each year into SIP. A minimum annual contribution of $100 is required. Any TPPA member that contributes to the Strategic Investment Program a minimum of $100 or the equivalent of 10 cents per $100 in value for all pigs marketed in a year will also receive credit for having paid their TPPA annual membership fees. You may include your SIP contribution in your check and we will register you as a member of both TPPA & NPPC.
