Unsmoked pancetta 250g


Availability: In stock

A piece of dry-cured pork belly for you to cut just as you like – slices, cubes, lardons. Pancetta adds a deep, salty note to boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin. Or crisp it up and stir into pasta, or use as a garnish on soups and salads. We cure it for 10 days, then hang for another 14-21 days for a firm texture and intense flavour.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep. Minimum meat order £15 to cover the cost of the packaging.


Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. If you’re not going to eat it within a day or two, freeze your meat as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen, use within a month. Use on the day of defrosting.

How to cook pancetta

Slice or cube and fry or grill for 2-3 mins on each side.


Pork, cure (salt*, sugar, preservatives E250* and E252*), (* non organic).

Organic pork farmer

Our pork comes from Richard Hazell on Scrubbets Farm in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Their pigs are mostly of the Duroc breed, mixed with Landrace and Large White. This makes for hardy animals with tasty meat, granted an old-fashioned flavour and texture by their higher fat content.

The pigs are reared outdoors to the highest welfare standards. They have lots of space to roam and engage in natural behaviours, and are regularly moved onto clean, fresh organic pasture.
