World Bacon Day Origins

World Bacon Day or International Bacon Day was started by "Alexa and the Bacon Boys". The Bacon Boys? Yup, Two regular guys who love bacon decided there should be a day devoted to bacon- no pork producers, no farmers, no restaurant, just a couple of guys in Colorado who love Bacon. They love Bacon so much, they started the Bacon Day Blog, back in 2008 to spread the word about their vision for a day devoted to.. yup Bacon! Is there a food you're that passionate about? Word spread about International Bacon Day, and last year World Bacon Day was celebrated in many countries around the world including Canada.

World Bacon Day - Getting Mapped

Locally there are many Ontario Pork producers, and retailers, but very few are registered on the Ontario Pork Map,  nor on the Yelp bacon restaurants map. Do you sell bacon to your customers? Now is a good time to get mapped!

World Bacon Day - Health

Is bacon healthy for you? Some bacon links  suggest that it is, but 6 slices of bacon can give you 150% of your daily sodium allowance. Therefore if you love bacon, you may want to use recipes that stretch the flavour.
