Animal offers Buffalo Bacon and Lamb Bacon. The bacon is made with chopped and formed buffalo or lamb meat and mixed with traditional pork in an 80-20 ratio. The company says the blend gives consumers the best of both worlds in the bacon universe — the sizzling qualities of pork bacon with the benefits of a lean protein.
But Animal Inc. is doing more than bringing boutique bacon to the masses. The company is a partner with Heifer International, a global non-profit working to eradicate hunger by helping small communities sustainably produce food and a steady income.
Animal Inc. was formed in the spring of 2015, according to the company’s website, and officially launched after two years of product testing. Shipping for pre-orders began in April this year. Animal Inc. donates time and a portion of the company’s profits to Heifer International twice a year.
