Available at Whole Foods Market in New England for CA$6.99, the Organic Applewood Smoked Uncured Canadian Bacon is part of the company’s plans to expand its line of organic, certified humane products.
The company said the product is cut from the leanest section of a pork loin and is hand-trimmed by North Country’s butchers. Following this, the medallions are marinated in a brine made from pure maple syrup and premium spices, as well as double smoked.
The Applewood Smoked Uncured Canadian Bacon line is also free of nitrates, nitrites, growth hormones and antibiotics.
North Country Smokehouse said its latest product is “unlike anything else on the market”.
“Through our traditional low and slow smoke method, this product retains a full-bodied flavour unrivalled by other Canadian bacons,” said North Country Smokehouse’s chief operating officer Aaron Corbett.
“We’re also proud to be a leader in the industry with our commitment to animal welfare standards by continuing to provide USDA Organic and Certified Humane options for consumers across our product lines.”
Founded in Claremont, New Hampshire nearly a century ago, North Country Smokehouse produces a range of artisanal smoked bacon, ham, sausages, beef and poultry.
