Australian Pork Limited (APL) represents the coming together of three legacy organisations - Australian Pork Corporation; Pig Research and Development Corporation; and Pork Council of Australia. APL is a unique rural industry service body for the Australian pork industry. It is a producer-owned company delivering integrated services that enhance the viability of Australia's pig producers. The organisation aims to enhance opportunities for the sustainable growth of the Australian pork industry by delivering integrated marketing, innovation and policy services along the pork industry supply chain. APL pursues opportunities for the industry at both the domestic and international level. Funding for APL is primarily through statutory pig slaughter levies collected under the Primary Industries (Excise) Levies Act 1999 with additional research specific funds provided by the Australian Government.
