Pork belly is the rich, fatty cut of meat that bacon comes from. Given how popular bacon is, you can imagine that there’s consistent demand for pork belly. But quality is important — specifically, how firm the meat is. Pork bellies that aren’t firm enough are harder to cut and tend to be lower quality.
Our clients at NutriQuest decided they wanted a display to show how one common evaluation of pork belly firmness works. So we engineered two pieces of artificial pork meat showing different firmnesses. Like all our lifelike reproductions, our fake meat is highly realistic. One of the faux meat pieces is properly firm, and the other is noticably limp. With the fake meat display, NutriQuest can show its clients the dramatic differences that are possible between the firmness of different pork bellies.
