Category: Making Bacon

When is handmade not handmade?

Back before Christmas we launched an advertising campaign on Twitter which featured the phrase “Handmade Bacon”. The response was slightly overwhelming with a myriad of responses:

“How can bacon be handmade?”

“Surely the bacon is pig made”

“How can you make bacon out of hands?”

The list goes on and on, and started a debate whether these points were fair and that we had inaccurately described our process. So for the record we though it only right that we outline the production process from butchery through to packaging.handmade

Each loin is handled more than 6 times. For those that don’t know bacon comes from pork, pork comes from pigs, you cannot make our bacon without the process outlined above which is by hand.

We could fully automate our production process and no doubt make it much more efficient until that time comes we are more than happy to say our bacon is handmade, because quite simply it is!

We are open throughout the week so you are more than welcome to come and see for yourselves how Cure & Simple Bacon is made.
