Some lucky fans will be bringing home the bacon – literally – as part of a new promotional contest from Patrick Cudahy, a pork processing unit of John Morrell Food Group and Smithfield Foods.

The “Patrick Cudahy, Free Bacon Sweepstakes" will reward one winner each with a year’s supply of Sweet Apple-Wood Smoked Bacon.

The contest is part of their “Say Hey to Summer” campaign, which launched earlier this month. The activities aren’t just online – throughout July and August, Wisconsin will become a hotbed of bacon-filled activities, including the third-annual "Patrick Cudahy Race for the Bacon" and "Patrick Cudahy Bacon Lover's Day" at the Wisconsin State Fair.

"Patrick Cudahy has a lot in store for our consumers this summer," said Bud Matthews, Senior Vice President, Patrick Cudahy, LLC. "We love summer time and have plenty of events and activities for families to celebrate the season with us. There will be no shortage of fun for bacon lovers. Everything we do, it's our way of saying 'thank you' to everyone who supports us. We appreciate their patronage and we want to make every effort to make it their best summer yet."
