Bacon producer Denhay Farms has been awarded a Royal Warrant to the Prince of Wales.

Denhay, which started producing bacon in 1994, is the first bacon curer to receive the warrant, which it will hold for a period of five years. "We hope this added recognition speaks volumes for the quality and taste of our bacon," said director George Streatfeild.

Denhay bacon is available in delicatessens, high-end food halls as well as Waitrose, which signed a licensing deal with the Prince's Duchy Originals brand last year.
