McCormick, Sigma U.S. Team Up On Flavored Marinated Bacon

Sigma McCormick Bacon

McCormick Grill Mates in partnership with Sigma U.S. has rolled out McCormick Grill Mates Marinated Bacon in four flavors.

A three-step process is used to make the bacon. The pork is marinated to soak in flavor, then smoked with natural hardwood smoke, sliced thick and finally seasoned by flavor experts with a blend of McCormick Grill Mates seasonings.

“Marinating has been bringing more flavor to steak, chicken and pork for years, so it made great sense to do the same with bacon,” said Jeff Gaunt, marketing director at Sigma in the U.S. “Our three-step process delivers more flavor than bacon that is only smoked, making it easy for consumers to enjoy a bacon that tastes better than any bacon they’ve had before.”

All four flavors use thick-cut bacon that is marinated, smoked and seasoned with Grill Mates:

  • Ultimate Bacon—marinated and seasoned with extra bacon flavor;
  • Montreal Steak—with pepper, garlic and spices;
  • Smoky Applewood—combines chili pepper, garlic and Applewood smoke flavor; and
  • Brown Sugar Bourbon—brown sugar, bourbon, red bell peppers and spices.

“What makes this new product truly innovative among bacon everywhere is the fact that it’s marinated. Other bacons on the market are typically flavored just with smoke. We are adding two additional steps to enhance flavor, introducing a new type of bacon that everyone is going to fall in love with,” said Gaunt.

The bacon joins the existing line of Sigma U.S. and McCormick Grill Mates-seasoned products, including beef franks and smoked sausage.
