Pork Belly Boneless Skin On:
Having little waste from the Pork Belly Boneless Skin On makes it great value for money because you are not paying for excess trimmings to throw away. The shrinkage from this piece is minimal compared to others of lesser quality, & this gives you more meat pound for pound. The 1.5 kilo + packs offer a good-sized piece that feeds a family of 4-5 with generous portions.
The texture of the pork belly meat is semi coarse & becomes very tender during cooking, this is very well suited for the oven & easy to cook. The light pink colour of the meat is perfect because it shows that the quality of the pork is grade A because the process from farm to fork has been perfected over generations to deliver the best products.
The meat to fat ratio of our pork is ideal when you have a piece like this because you will have the delicious meat accompanied by enough fat to enhance the flavour. When you are cooking with this, the results will be far better than too lean or too fat. Pork Belly Boneless Skin On has a great flavour & is also a great source of vitamins, minerals & high in protein, which proves that eating healthier doesn’t need to be boring.
The fat can be removed after the meat is cooked & rested before serving to reduce fat intake.
The smaller pieces of Pork Belly Boneless Skin on are vacuum sealed into clear pouches to protect & preserve all the natural flavour of the meat. The Pork Belly is cut & packed within a few minutes to ensure that the pork does not dry out & to make it as fresh as possible before vacuum sealing. The shelf life is increased through this process & it makes for a safer product because no natural bacteria can grow when packed, sealed & then frozen to -18°C.
At Sherwood Foods we are very conscious of producing the best & safest products possible under the right conditions, using only BRC approved premises that are constantly monitored during production.
The clear pouches we currently use are stronger & thinner than before because we are constantly looking to lower our carbon footprint & use less plastic. We are waiting for a fully Biodegradable packing solution, but the safety of the product is first & it has to be affordable to keep prices down. With this in mind, we are appreciative of our customers recycling responsibly at home because this is helping towards a greener future.
The packaging we ship our products in is recyclable please see our packing information page.
When your delivery arrives at your door, we want you to have the best experience possible.
Selecting the right pork to make our products is a very important part of the process & we love the results from the Pietrain pig.
There are many breeds of pigs in the world, each with different characteristics, some large fatty ones, to small very lean types. The Pietrain Pig is a low cholesterol breed that has fantastic meat to fat ratio. Having access to a large volume of a good grade, perfect sized pork sides to choose from on a daily basis enables us to create the consistent “Restaurant Quality” pork cuts that people have come to expect from the Sherwood brand.
Our daily supply of pigs is from local countryside farms in Belgium & Northern France.
The name of the pigs originates from the village of “Pietrain” in the Wallonia region of Belgium.
