Kennedy Bacon – Bacon at its best, bacon like it used to be

There’s nothing quite like the scent of sizzling bacon – that tastes and smells the way it used to!

Traditional bacon producer Kennedy’s has been farming pigs since the 1940s from its family farm near Omagh – and it’s still a family business  producing bacon and selling in to local markets and shops across Northern Ireland and Ireland.

With a new processing factory in Magheraroarty on the pier in Donegal and further expansion plans, Kennedy Bacon is creating employment and supplying its traditional style bacon to Hendersons, Musgraves, local butchers, retailers, hotels, sandwich companies, fast food outlets , farm shops  and convenience stores.

The company also sells in various traditional farmers markets – where its products are sought after by consumers week after week.

Kennedy’s Cooked Bacon Bits (Lardons) are proving to be a hit with consumers and retailers alike. The tasty ‘bits’ are ideal for pizza toppings and a whole range of dishes, but it’s the traditional rashers and gammons that remain the mainstay of the business.

Retaining its reputation as an artisan, family run business – with dry cured, no water added bacon, this traditional style and taste has ensured Kennedy Bacon has reaped many  awards and accolades.
