The "Net Price" shown in the far right column for "Fresh Sliced Bacon" was calculated to consider a 30% yield as if you cooked enough fresh bacon to end-up with a pound of cooked bacon. It is the only way to accurately compare pricing of fresh and precooked bacon. This computation was not made in the "National Summary" portion of the report.

Freezing low-priced bacon for later use can help families save money. Bacon Pro's "Bacon Price Report" page is updated each week so price comparisons are made a little easier. The "Net Price" for fresh cooked bacon vs. precooked bacon illustrates the price differential between these two consumer options. This snap-shot by geographical region is particularly helpful when combined with a passing knowledge of local bacon prices. It is an added perspective to see if and when it makes sense to stock-up on bacon when prices are relatively low.
