The APL team had a pig of a time at this year’s Kingaroy BaconFest, proudly supported by SunPork.

Bigger and better than ever, it was amazing to see the local community come together to celebrate all things pork across the three-day event.

APL was proud to deliver the bacon eating competition again this year. For the first time, every heat of the competition was full, with a total of 64 contestants stepping-up to try and claim the prize of a year’s worth of Australian bacon.

The competition was also a great opportunity to educate consumers on how they can support Aussie pork farmers, and make sure they’re buying Australian grown bacon.

Among the team this year were two APL team members who attended the event for the first time — with both commenting on how impressed they were with the experience and how enlightening it was to see our industry brought to life in this way.

This event is a fabulous opportunity to promote and celebrate Australian pork, and we look forward to joining the community for another great edition in 2024.
