SEVEN INDUSTRY SEGMENTS

There are seven raw cotton industry segments, and the National Cotton Council of America (NCC) is the central organization that represents them all. The mission is to keep cotton competitive in the fiber and oilseed markets at home and abroad, allowing the industry to compete effectively and profitably. Each membership segment has an equal voice in developing policy in support of this mission. Together, they form a broader base for action on legislative, research and regulatory issues affecting the $120 billion industry that employs more than 340,000 people.
