Sharing the Joy of Bacon

Who clicked over just to stare at the bacon? We understand — bacon makes our mouths water just as much as it does yours. Bacon is well loved the world over for its taste and versatility, from salads to BLTs to burgers.

What a happy coincidence it is that we live in the Bacon Capital of Canada! That’s right, Manitoba produces more bacon than anywhere else in the country — over 38 million kilograms. That bacon then makes its way into stores at home and around North America, making up a big portion of the more than $1.7 billion the pork sector contributes to our province’s economy every year.

Watch the videos below to see the difference Manitoba’s hog farmers are making now in rural communities.
