Everything is better with bacon, so someone said once. And our research shows very little to dispute this assertion.

The Canada and The United States make bacon from the pork belly. Rest of countries all over the world use the side and back cuts of pork. The meat is cured in either a salt pack or in a salt brine. It is then either dried, smoked, or boiled.
