The National Pork Board has developed a niche pork terminology fact sheet and poster to help retailers educate consumers and promote niche pork products. The in-store promotional tools are now available online at www.nichepork.org.
The focus of the fact sheet and poster is to help consumers and retail employees better understand terms like locally grown, naturally raised and organic.
The Web site also is designed to assist retailers in connecting with area pork producers offering niche products. There is information on cooking times and temperatures, storing and defrosting pork products, a review of basic pork cuts and recipes..
