Project ID



A case study and business plan were created to support continuation of the Pork Niche Market Working Group (PNMWG).

Key Question

How can a working group of niche pork companies, niche pork producers and stakeholder groups transition to new leadership and a new organizational home that will assure it continues to provide value to its members?


The project used a participatory process to gather input from PNMWG members for a business plan for the group. This plan is being used as a framework for a transitioning process being led by the Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University to assure that the PNMWG continues into the future.
