Choosing Canadian Pork
When you’re looking for flavour, tenderness, versatility and healthy eating, Canadian pork is the perfect choice. Pork produced in Canada is top quality, safe and delicious. Its mild taste is well-suited to diverse flavour combinations – spicy, hot, tangy or sweet – and is the basis for many ethnic favourites. A wide variety of pork cuts, both bone-in and boneless, suit all cooking styles and make meal planning and preparation easy.
If the pork at your favourite grocery store or butcher shop isn’t labeled, be sure to ask where it comes from.
