NPPC welcomes Prop 12 implementation modification

Jun 26, 2023

Members of the National Pork Producers Council in the US welcomed news that California has agreed to push the controversial Proposition 12 implementation back six months. 

"It is welcome news to America’s pig farmers and consumers that California recognised the challenging situation the July 1 Proposition 12 implementation date will have on our industry and food supply," said NPPC CEO Bryan Humphreys. "Granting six months of additional relief for products in the supply chain allows grocery stores to remain stocked so the 40 million Californians have uninterrupted access to affordable, safe and nutritious pork products, especially with rising food prices."

“We appreciate Governor Newsom, Attorney General Bonta, and the California Department of Food and Agriculture for their efforts over the past month to find a solution to achieve a smoother transition for the entire pork value chain, including our foreign trading partners," Humphreys added.
