New Opportunities
Wed, 24 Sep 2014

Chris Novak is in his final week on the job as chief executive officer of the National Pork Board. In the month ahead, Novak will take a similar post for the National Corn Growers Association.  During his past six years, hog prices went from dramatic lows to all-time highs. The industry dealt with H1N1 and launched the new Pork-Be Inspired tagline. Novak said the pork industry has also faced challenges from the activist community, resulting in a renewed relationship with its food chain customers. "We recognize that as many of them made announcements, we needed to have a closer relationship with them," said Novak, "We worked with McDonald's for years about the McRib, but at the same time, we weren't talking to the folks at McDonald's who were talking to their customers about issues on the farm and we've changed that. We have a different relationship than we did just three years ago." The RRFN interview with Novak can be found online.
