Packing bacon for shipping depends on what type is being sent. If the bacon is slow-smoked and salt-cured, it may not need refrigeration as long as delivered immediately. For fresh bacon, however, refrigeration or freezing is recommended to prevent spoilage. To be safe and ensure freshness while shipping, bacon is best shipped with dry ice or cold gel packs. Here are tips on how to properly pack and ship bacon.
Place bacon in vacuum packed bags or air-tight containers. It should be well-packed and does not move around the container. Seal the bag/container then wrap packing paper. Place in a box along with cold packs or dry ice. Fill empty spaces with packing materials to prevent shifting. Follow instructions when shipping with dry ice.
Close and seal the package and place it in a slightly larger box with packing materials all around. Address and label the package and take to the post office or shipping company.
