Bacon
BY ANDY NELSON
PANDEMICS AND RECESSIONS COME AND GO, but certain things remain: death, taxes -and
Americans' love for bacon. The only thing that changes in this ever-popular category is the lineup
of products created to give consumers new twists on an old favorite.
As a brand, North Country Smokehouse USDA Organic and Certified Humane bacon is still a
relative newcomer to the premium bacon category. But the company has more than a century of
award-winning smokehouse experience behind it, which it is proudly sharing with current and
would-be customers and consumers.
" We have a great story to tell - artisan quality, small-batch, smokehouse, certified humane and
organic, " said Mike Kelly, North Country's vice president of business development.
This summer, North Country added Wegmans and Earth Fare to its list of retail partners. The
company's bacon is now in close to 4,000 stores, include Target, Hannaford, Whole Foods, Stop
and Shop, HEB and Gelson's.
North Country has been recognized by Food and Wine magazine for producing one of the
best bacons in the country. Other kudos have come from publications include Men's Journal and
Men's Health.
The company starts with the highest-quality bellies and a maple syrup brine from Vermont or
New Hampshire, then tumbles them and smokes them for six hours.
" The tagline on our packaging is 'Some things simply can't be compromised,' " said Alicia
Baker, North Country's marketing director. " With everything we've done, we take it slow and low.
