NPPC Cancels World Pork Expo: Caution is Right Call

The National Pork Producers Council made a very difficult decision today to cancel the World Pork Expo.

The National Pork Producers Council made a very difficult decision today to cancel the World Pork Expo. I applaud the U.S. pork industry for its vigilance in keeping African swine fever (ASF) out of our country and support NPPC’s move.

This isn’t the first time they’ve had to make a tough call like this. I’ll never forget when World Pork Expo was cancelled in 2001 due to a severe outbreak of foot and mouth disease in Europe. It was an eye-opening moment for me and gave me great confidence in our industry’s decisionmakers.

No one wants the World Pork Expo to be cancelled as it is certainly the highlight of the year for many, but it’s up to us to do what we can to keep ASF out.
