Pulled Pork Popularity: The Pendle Pig Comments


Lancashire, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2015 -- According to recent news from the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) there is a planned Pulled Pork campaign which will be supported by culinary celebrities including Tom Kerridge, the Michelin starred T.V Chef. With the intention of encouraging interest in British pork as an affordable and attractive food, the campaign for pulled pork is expected to be supported with over 1.3 million 'perfect for pulled pork' stickers displayed on associated pork products in supermarkets. Retailers are hoping this will further the current popularity of pulled meat products and encourage people to try it themselves at home.

Pulled pork especially has soared in popularity in recent years, especially in light of how tender and succulent the meat can be. This makes for a tasty sandwich filling as well as satisfying in itself, and because of how the meat is cooked and drops away from the bone, this is an attractive choice for children also. Pork has seen a particular usage for pulled meat, as the shoulder offers an ideal joint to produce the most ideal texture. That BPEX, the pigs division of the AHDB is therefore planning to use a pulled pork campaign to further sales highlights how popular it is.
