The Alberta Pork Producers Development Corporation was organized in 1969 as a self-sustaining, non-profit hog producer and hog marketing board controlled and directed by a board of directors.
Alberta Pork’s primary mandate from 1969 to 1996 was the marketing of all hogs for slaughter, as a single-desk seller, and to carry out programs on behalf of producers. In late 1996, the marketing powers were modified to allow open marketing for producers
Alberta Pork continues to represent the province’s registered hog producers before government, industry partners, media, the general public and other interest groups.
In November 2019, during Alberta Pork's annual general meeting and 50th anniversary banquet, a celebratory video, produced by The Two Cowboys, was shown to guests. See the full video below:
