About this project

We have a confession. . .we like bacon. Perhaps “like” isn't strong enough. We LOVE bacon. Our problem? Regular bacon was never portable enough (or classy enough) for our liking. We’d spend ten minutes over a hot stove, dodging hot grease projectiles. And if we wanted the bacon for later? We’d shove it in a Ziploc bag… classy, huh? 

Our answer to this conundrum? Go Bacon—1.5 ounces of gloriously delicious bacon jerky strips. That’s real strips of bacon in your pocket for whenever your inner carnivore calls.  

Everyone that's tasted Go Bacon agrees it is amazingly delicious! Our bacon jerky is the perfect balance of crispy and chewy texture. If you like a little spice, we recommend the Sriracha; if not, go with the Original. Either way, your taste buds will thank you.

Tribute to Go Bacon: the most delicious food in all existence. Just look at those full strips of bacon. Are you salivating?

Go Bacon is made with premium, all-natural jerkified bacon strips. Our bacon jerky will be produced with the help of a USDA approved facility in Southern California. We use high quality bacon to give you the best tasting bacon to eat whenever and wherever you want. 

Oh bacon, how I love you.

ManufacturingPlan

The Go Bacon product will be manufactured in California. In preparation for this campaign, we developed a great relationship with our Californian manufacturer who will help us with the meat processing and packaging. 

Prototyping & Design

We went through several iterations of package design concepts in order to find the perfect “portable” package for Go Bacon. We feel that our final packaging decision, a 4"x6" bag, is the perfect size: it's small enough to fit in your pocket, yet big enough to pack 1.5 oz. of pork belly. It's just the right size to satisfy the needs of bacon lovers anywhere and in any situation.

Our pocket-sized packaging solution is extremely innovative and unique. In fact, we were unable to find a bacon jerky manufacturer that already produces a pocket-sized package. Therefore, we had to work with both packaging and bacon jerky manufacturers to create our custom Go Bacon packaging solution.

Why Kickstarter?

Kickstarter transforms creative ideas into reality and Go Bacon is genuine creativity: it's the world's most portable bacon. So far as our research has shown, no one before us has created a pocket-sized bacon product; in fact, our pocket-sized packaging is our own custom creation (see the Prototyping & Design section for more details about our custom packaging). 

Go Bacon is an innovative new product. We are asking Kickstarter's community of noble backers to help us raise the money necessary to make our dream of mobile-enabled bacon a reality. Due to the cost of minimum order requirements from manufacturers for bacon and pocket-sized packaging, we cannot produce Go Bacon without raising funds from the Kickstarter community. 

Thank you for your help!

Risks and challenges

We've secured relationships with materials suppliers who assure us that they can fill very large orders should we need them. If, however, this project is wildly successful, we may experience delays in production. Though our manufacturers have a large production capacity, it is not unlimited and could be overrun if the project succeeds far beyond our expectations.

Go Bacon requires custom packaging and production. Our meat manufacturer has never produced pocket-sized, 4"x6" units of bacon jerky, but they assure us that producing units of such a size will not be a problem. However, we acknowledge that there may be unforeseen risks that come with producing a new product that has not been made before. If our bacon manufacturer experiences significant difficulties, we may be forced to use a slightly larger package size in the production of Go Bacon.

Space for storage and packaging / fulfillment may also become problematic should the project become successful far beyond our expectations, however we can gain access to additional facilities if needed.
