Dierks Inducted Into Pork Industry Hall of Fame

Neil Dierks served the U.S. pork industry for 40 years, spending 20 of those years as CEO of the National Pork Producers Council. 

For his dedication and countless contributions to the industry, Neil Dierks was inducted into the National Pork Industry Hall of Fame at the NPPC’s annual business meeting – National Pork Industry Forum – in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Dierks retired in December after a total of 31 years with the NPPC. He helped develop the organization that was born after a separation agreement created the National Pork Board. Dierks then became the first CEO of the reconstituted NPPC. 

After taking over as CEO, he guided NPC’s steady growth for the next two decades, expanding sources of revenue and establishing it as a highly effective and influential national advocacy organization critical to the profitable growth of U.S. pork producers. 

NPPC President Jen Sorenson says, “Neil is a giant within the U.S. pork industry.”
