Happy National Bacon Week


Australian Bacon Week: 25th June - 1st of July 2020

National Bacon Week is an initiative of the Australian Pork Industry to celebrate good Aussie Bacon. The annual event usually includes the Australian Bacon Awards to source the best rashers.

We at Mediterranean Wholesale Foods Pty Ltd. have supplied our customers with some of the most popular bacon out! And it’s received your approval!
Check out our ranges of bacon below.

Streaky Rindless Bacon 

Streaky bacon or side bacon comes from pork belly. It is streaked with long layers of fat running parallel to the rind. Due to the fat content on this cut of bacon, it makes for a very succulent and juicy taste. Ideal for sealing in moisture and adding flavour to a roast or large cut of meat and an all time fave if you like your bacon super crispy.

Premium Shortcut Bacon

Short cut bacon is the ‘eye’ of bacon and is usually very lean, with minimal fat. It comes from the loin in the middle of the back of the pig. This is one of our best selling cuts due to the depth of flavour and texture. Great if you like your bacon meaty with little fat. Short cut bacon also holds its shape better once cut into pieces, thus making it a good option for pastas such as carbonara and soups like minestrone.

Premium Middle Bacon

Middle bacon rashers are larger in piece as it includes the back and streaky bacon in one cut. They are excellent in flavour and texture and taken from the middle of the pig. A really tasty cut of bacon!


Pancetta is an Italian bacon that has a high fat content as it comes from the pork belly. Our Pancetta is salt cured and spiced with black pepper and other spices. Perfect for sandwiches and appetizers.


Guanciale is an Italian bacon made from pork jowl or cheeks.  This style of bacon is rubbed with salt and spices and cured for 3-5 weeks. Due to it’s long curing and drying time, the resulting bacon produces a delicate texture with a stronger flavour than pancetta. 
Upon cooking, the fat typically melts away giving great depth of flavour and richness to the dishes and sauces it is used in. Guanciale may be cut and eaten directly in small portions, but is often used as a pasta ingredient. 


To celebrate all things bacon, we are offering our home shoppers a dozen caged 600g eggs for free with any bacon purchase for the duration of National Bacon week.

Offer commences 25th June and ends Wednesday July 1st 2020 at 3pm and applies to a maximum of one order per household over the duration of the promotion
