Re: English Bacon

A late answer I know...
We make proper back bacon (thick cut, smoked and unsmoked no water injected) and various British and South African style sausages. It is available on line at www.meatpoint.ch (we mail all over) or in shop at Jim's British Market in Gland, canton Vaud.

But your website is a pile of crap - and requires people to login to see prices.

Re: English Bacon

Aldi Germany often offer English style back bacon ( for about 10 rappen per kilo) - I exaggerate the price!.
Actually is not bad but a bit thin cut for my taste, definitely better than frying the usual Black Forest "bacon"; which itself reminds me of the thin cut Canadian bacon (in tins if my memory is working) we used to get in CARE packages post WW11 - so anyway a bit of nostalgia.

Yeah, pretty interesting how you can expect to make more business by making a site members only...

However, I took one for the team and the prices are basically:
  • British-style sausages (regular, cumberland etc) - 400g (6 sausages) - 14chf
  • Bacon (back) - 250g - 11chf (basic brand)-15chf (premium brand)
  • Pies (Beef & Guinness etc) - 4x 230g - 35chf

Sorry but you need to wise up a little, this is not 1920 where people want to have to pop in anywhere for a friendly chat, and unless you do not actually want more business or can afford to be incredibly selective about your custom then as far as marketing strategies go it is pretty bizarre.

You are asking people to give you their personal information (name, number, email) simply to get access to your site and view products and prices without even knowing if they will like what they see... in the modern digital age that is not really so acceptable for a simple online store, and I highly doubt from looking at your site or reading your posts that your online security or awareness is up to so much. How are you protecting everyone's personal information? Have you made efforts to make your website secure?

Re: English Bacon

It's allll tooooo late ..... after time in the States, and, now, many years here, my tastes have been well and truly assaulted and I've been converted to streaky ..... there is no way back - just too lean and dry.

Re: English Bacon

Call me old fashioned then (as are our recipes and methods).
1,122 over four years, excluding yourself and 4 others who signed up today is good enough for me - we don't produce on an industrial scale.
