Here in Devon we are extremely lucky to have so many fantastic local producers on our doorstep – from artisan cheeses and bespoke blended teas to quality sausages and handmade puddings. In a time when consumers are increasingly concerned with low food miles and the provenance of their food, locality and the ‘shop local’ campaign have never been more apt. With this in mind we are producing a blog series on our local producers and their delicious products, this week focusing on Devon Choice.
Devon Choice supply the majority of our retail packed bacon. Based in Teignmouth they have been supplying traditional bacon and cooked meats throughout the South West since 1975. A small family owned business, Devon Choice rely on their consistent quality and value from the same high quality pork supplier to keep loyal customers returning time and time again. Originally supplying back bacon and speciality hams they are now able to smoke their own bacon over traditional oak chippings, resulting in a unique and delicious flavour.
We currently stock lean English cured back bacon, smoked back, streaky and smoked streaky bacon all of which are full of flavour and available in both 2.27kg catering packs and 200g retail packs. The Devon Choice dry-cured bacon has become a bestseller, naturally dry cured for up to two months the result is a strong tasting, robust flavoured bacon. Click here to view the full range.
