The Duck Council is comprised of member companies that produce or process high quality duck and goose products. The Council guides USPOULTRY in providing assistance to establish best practices for industry-related issues such as, but not limited to, food safety, animal welfare, environmental stewardship and biosecurity.
The Council provides a unified voice to support the interest of the industry with respect to the regulatory environment. As needed, the Council may sponsor general research to support the expansion of duck and goose consumption and continued improvements in live production and processing technology.
