A third generation farmer, Mervyn Kennedy launched his bacon processing business as a farm diversification project in Omagh, County Tyrone.

Mervyn concentrated on developing his own dry-curing technique to give his products a distinctive taste and processes a wide range of dry-cure products from the farm's extensive herd of pigs. Kennedy bacon is cured in as near to the traditional way as possible, using the minimum amount of cure, which leaves the bacon less salty.

Kennedy Bacon products have won UK Great Taste Awards and, most recently, at the Blas na hEireann Irish National Food Awards. At Blas, the Northern Ireland company gained recognition for its bacon lardons aimed at chefs and foodservice operations.

In September 2017, Kennedy Bacon announced it was expanding production to meet the growing demand for its range of products following orders from leading retailers within the Musgrave Group and independent retailers in the Republic of Ireland.

Kennedy Bacon products are also available to buy at farmers Country Markets across Northern Ireland and select local retail outlets. Products can also be ordered directly from the farm.
