Monogram Foods Team with Comedian Steve Harvey to Launch Easy Bacon by Harvey Foods

– Roasted Bacon Line Offers Faster Cook Time and Less Mess –

Memphis, TN (September 22, 2015) – Monogram Foods, a leading manufacturer and distributor of high-quality meat snacks and other food products, announced today that it has partnered with comedian Steve Harvey’s HarCal Enterprises to create an innovative line of wholesome and hearty smoked meats headlined by a truly unique roasted bacon called Easy Bacon by Harvey Foods.

Designed to bring ease and convenience to the world’s most popular meat, Easy Bacon is real bacon, cut into thick savory slices, hickory smoked and roasted to reduce the cook time and amount of grease for the consumer. Easy Bacon can be prepared from skillet to plate in under two minutes, giving real home cooked bacon back to a time-constrained America.

Easy Bacon also boasts a clean ingredient label, meaning the bacon is cured with simple ingredients like salt and hickory smoke, versus preservatives that are complicated, and hard to pronounce.

Commenting on the product debut, Monogram Foods President and co-founder Wes Jackson stated, “We are thrilled to partner with beloved comedian and Family Feud host Steve Harvey on the debut of what is certain to be a game changer in the world of bacon products.

“In 2011, we were the first to introduce bacon jerky to the consumer marketplace and today we continue Monogram’s tradition of seeking new and innovative product lines through the introduction of the faster cooking, less mess Easy Bacon product. Through our proprietary roasting process, we are able to offer consumers a product that not only cooks in an average of 2 minutes versus 8-10 minutes for traditional raw center cut bacon, but also results in an approximately 80 percent reduction in the amount of grease and unwanted smoke created during the cooking process.”

Easy Bacon by Harvey Foods will go on sale in mid-October in all major retailers in the greater Atlanta area, with plans to launch nationally in the spring of 2016.
