Back bacon is not exactly what it says on the tin. In fact, it is a cut which takes in not only the lean pork loin from the back of the pig but also part of the belly which provides the fatty streaky bit we all love at the thinner end.
Dry cured and unsmoked which makes it slightly moister than smoked bacon (the smoking process tends to dry the meat out a little).
Our farmers' outdoor-reared, native breed pigs develop an intense flavour and a healthy layer of fat as they mature at their natural pace, what a way to super charge your weekend brekky!
Native breeds include Gloucester Old Spot, Cornish Black, Berkshire, Tamworth and Blythburgh.

Everyone has their preferred bacon method. Head of Marketing Matt favours the grill and flip, but many restaurants opt for baking in the oven at 180 for 15-20 mins - some pretty delicious crispiness is the result. How do you cook yours?! #eatheartierCheck out more recipes
Back bacon is a very British bacon cut. American bacon is streaky bacon which is taken from the fattier belly while Canadian bacon is taken from the leaner loin only. We Brits take the loin and a bit of belly and why not? It's the best of both worlds
