Extra Special bacon

If you love bacon you’ll love our new Extra Special Oak-Smoked Thick Cut Dry Cured Bacon rashers.

Made from 100% British pork from Red Tractor approved farms, the rashers are dry-cured and hand-rubbed with salt. They’ve also been oak-smoked for an intense flavour and thick cut to give an extra meaty bite – perfect for sandwiches or a great British fry-up!

They were just one of 13 gold award-winners in The Grocer Own Label awards 2015. We’re also delighted to pick up eight silver awards for our own ranges.
