Beckett’s Foods has signed an agreement with a US firm to enable it to introduce American streaky cooked bacon to the retail market.
The new product, which will sell under the Fresh & Fast! label, comes in five flavours: light smoke, hickory smoke, jalapeno, peppered and maple. The product has a shelf life of six months and can be stored ambiently till opened, then eaten cold or heated.
Meanwhile, TMI Foods has developed a range of cooked bacon pieces packed in sachets. The company said the sachet kept the pieces crispy until opened, when consumers could easily add them to salad and pasta dishes.
