Are “bacon” and “pork belly slices” the same item?

We are selling “pork belly slices”; are they the same thing as “bacon”?

Bacon is known for the cured process, prepared by salt, packed in brine or dry packaging. Further curing may occur using chemicals, additives or preservatives, and dried for weeks or months. They can be boiled or smoked.

Pork belly slices are the actual raw frozen meat that users could use to prepare bacon from. They are very popular in various cooking or preparation styles such as for “mookata” or for “shabu-shabu”; I personally prepare it with salt and BBQ it with butter (on a make-shift aluminium foil grill / pan).

Hope this helps! 🙂
