The sizzle, the smell, or even just the name. Glazed, gobbled, crispy or cured; the maverick of the meat kingdom that gets Australians salivating; the thing that takes pride of place on our breakfast plates: bacon.
Aussie consumers love to eat their pork – each one of us consumes nearly 23.5kg of it a year! (Australian Pork) – so when it comes to bringing home the bacon, you’d hope there was an obvious choice. Unfortunately 75% of bacon consumed in Australia is imported with the majority rapidly grown within intensive indoor systems. For those who want a better alternative, bringing home the bacon hasn’t been an easy choice – until now.
Introducing Borrowdale Free Range Bacon. Having achieved the highest level of Free Range Certification (from APIQ), this high welfare Australian grown bacon is also ‘added hormone’ free.
When Borrowdale piggies go to market, there’s no question about how they got there! Produced the old fashioned way by honest to goodness Aussie farmers on 10, 000 hectares of pig heaven in Goondiwindi, Queensland. We believe in high welfare standards for animals, and are proud to provide a locally grown alternative amidst the plethora of foreign foods available in Australian markets.
Borrowdale Free Range bacon is naturally wood smoked to create authentic flavour, so for animal lovers who also love their food or just bacon fiends who want the perfect pork, this is the bacon you’ve been achin’ for.
Borrowdale Free Range Bacon is now available at Thomas Dux stores and The Australian Meat Emporium.
