Don't blame you have some rep on the side;-)

Before I vote hot or cold is it British?

Think I'll just have a few of the packs for a penny.

Usually just take the free one on the BOGOF.:roll:

well i think it looks fairly british but it speaks with a danish accent lol;-)
...ahh I can live with it, Im having bacon sarnies not marrying it!!! lol

cold votes because its Danish bacon, now I could understand it if it was from a third world country or something.
Just proves this site can be a farce at times.If you know of a cheaper deal then post it on here...share the info...I would like to know if you know of a better deal..so would others.

Can you not find some politically correct wild boar organic rashers for that price please??:giggle:

Is this the same bacon that was 99p a pack for the last 4 weeks?

The new offers doubles the price but adds BOGOF. Luckily bacon has a long sell by date

I think the question is being asked because of the way British pigs are farmed, with strict standards, as opposed to European pig farming which has slack rules - hence CHEAP BACON.

Put simply: If you buy British bacon you have a guarantee the pigs have been reared humanely. From anywhere else (especially at a cut price) it has probably not been raised humanely.

I know you may laugh if I mention Jamie Oliver but if you have any sense please at least look at this page:

jamieoliver.com/bac…mer

Note the statement at the top:

"70% of pork products sold in Britain have been farmed in a way that is illegal here."

Think about it.

Sorry I have to agree................

Go Jamie...................

Get over it! How humane can it be to bring up an animal with the intention of killing it. If you are that worried about the pigs don't eat meat at all. By the way I'm not a veggie just bored of all these programmes.

You, like the majority of this country's ignorant consumers, could, with a little effort, make the world a better place. Open your eyes - you won't regret it I promise. :pirate:

Wherever it is from, it is still cheap water filled bacon anyway!

Even putting all of that and the other arguments aside too, (although in practice I don't, I try to be as sensibly ethical as I can on a limited income) I can't tell if this offer is a good buy or not... for one thing what SIZE are the packs... 150g? 175g ? 200g ? 225g ? 250g ? All are common vac-pack bacon sizes!

Netto have 2 x 200g packs for 1.99 from tomorrow that MIGHT be a poorer deal, the same deal or it might be a better deal - as I say, without the size, it is a bit of useless conjecture whether this is good or bad, so for thast reason alone, cold for rme! :-(

Very succinctly put, i'm in total agreement.

I used to get 2.25kg / 5lbs (approx 48 rashers) from a wholesale butchers open to the public for £6.50 proper danish bacon stamped sometimes.

So i they are making a profit on that what do they buy it for?

Would love to set up a forum / website exposing the cost price of most products, any buyers etc intersested in exposing the real cost of items in our shops?

i.e wholesale from a warehouse in Manchester not direct

4 AA Duracell Plus Batteries £ 1.20

Argos price £ 2.89 (and they get them direct form Duracell so even cheaper). They still make a profit selling at half price.

Well I think that is pretty much what we do here... now and again some people post ridiculous things like "half RRP" but that gets shot down pretty quick usually, RRP and such terms are meaningless, the cost of gear, any gear is the price you can get it for.
That said, wholesale or catering is a different issue - I can buy food cheap enough in a supermarket, and the same thing is astronomically more expensive in a restaurant - and so it always would be, for one thing the premises, staffing, preparation, storing and serving of it plus the VAT comes into effect.
We can all buy a whole pig, but turning it into bacon is a bit more involved!
Bread... well wheat is bought by the Tonne, cheap enough, but I wouldn't begin to compare it to the cost of bread without a lot more thinking it out!

Thanks, this is important and I'm in agreement too.
