Narkomprod (People's Commissariat of Food Production)

Narkomprod (People's Commissariat of Food Supply) was formed in 1917 to assist with the procurement of foodstuffs during the Russian Civil War. The New Economic Policy (NEP) from 1921 to 1928 led to the termination of food rationing and mass requisitioning. In turn, the change forced Narkomprod's closure in 1924.
