Smithfield Packing has introduced a new packaging design for the retail bacon category.

The PouchPack consists of two stay-fresh pouches that are perforated for easy separation, allowing consumers the flexibility of how much bacon to cook at one time, the company said.

According to Smithfield, each pouch has an E-Z peel opening. The bacon in the pouch is stacked, allowing consumers to peel the slices apart more easily.
