Hey, I’m still waiting for my package. What’s wrong?
Because of our commitment to serving only the highest quality Canadian peameal bacon, circumstances may occasionally occur that will delay receipt of your order. While the REAL Canadian Bacon Co. will make every effort to get your shipment to you by your desired date, we cannot guarantee the timely arrival of your package. To reduce the possibility of a late arrival, we encourage you to shop early!
