A comparison price on the cost of Bacon in Australia and UK at: 29th June 2011
I hesitated on doing this supermarket price comparison, as I always buy meat from a butcher in Australia, as it is always cheaper for me. Also, Australian bacon isn’t quite the same as British bacon.
However, here are some prices:
$4.95 Bacon Middle Rashers 500g ($9.90 per kilo)
$6.39 Primo Bacon Streaky Rindless 500g ($12.78 per kilo)
$4.00 Hans Bacon Short Cut Rindless 250g ($16.00 per kilo)
£2.48 Tesco 10 Unsmoked Back Bacon 300G (£8.27 per kg) (A$12.57)
£2.48 Tesco 10 Smoked Back Bacon 300G (£8.27 per kg) (A$12.57)
£3.00 Walls Smoked Back Bacon 260G (£11.54 per kilo) (A$17.54)

UK prices from Tesco.

Bacon is processed by brining slabs of the meat, smoke curing it and then cuttting the slabs into strips for easier use for preparation.
