Pederson's Natural Farms Utilizes "Whole Hog"

Pederson's Natural Farms, leader in superior all natural and organic meat production, has developed three new sugar free products in an effort to further their sustainability initiative and go "Whole Hog." Uncured No Sugar Buckin' Bacon is an artisan style bacon produced from the pork shoulder. Uncured No Sugar Canuckin' Bacon is Pederson's version of Canadian style bacon and utilizes the pork loin. Uncured No Sugar Thick Cut Ham Strips originate from the rear leg or ham. Additionally, all varieties of their traditional bacon comes from yet another portion of the hog: the belly.

These new offerings are Pederson's answer to the pork belly shortage felt globally.
"As leaders in environmental stewardship and innovation, it's imperative that we continuously and consistently seek ways to improve the environment and the industry. Because of the wild popularity of bacon, the demand for bellies is at an all time high. This creates both waste (of the rest of the hog) and sky high prices. So, we challenged our Research & Development team to solve the problem. They answered loud and clear with our 'Whole Hog' initiative. Using the whole hog gets rid of the waste and brings down prices. It's a win/win/win for the environment, our consumers, and the industry." -Cody Lane, President
With the development of these products comes new packaging and labeling. While all of Pederson's existing products will move towards this new branding and be available nationwide in countless retailers, the three new products, Uncured No Sugar Buckin' Bacon, Uncured No Sugar Canuckin' Bacon, and Uncured No Sugar Thick Cut Ham Strips, will be exclusive to Whole Foods Market for one year. The new products are expected to hit Whole Foods Markets in August of 2014.

Based in Hamilton, Texas, Pederson's has been producing fresh and smoked natural meat products since 1992. Dedicated to providing superior quality, naturally cured bacon, hams, sausage and much more, Pederson's mantra is "real people making real food using natural meats raised with humane and environmentally safe practices."
