Commodity Promotion Programs in the United States
Vande Kamp, Philip R.; Kaiser, Harry M.
An analysis of 102 survey responses from generic commodity promotion organizations was completed. Details regarding objectives, export promotion, funding sources, program evaluation, and the allocation of expenditures for promotion organizations were evaluated. We estimate that the organizations included in this analysis control 70 to 80 percent of the total generic commodity promotion expenditures in the U.S. Since generic commodity promotion organizations play a significant roll in promoting and marketing many commodities, analyses of these organizations should continue to provide potential benchmarking and summarizing information so that they can operate efficiently and effectively
