Thank you to our 2019 SunPork Smoke-Off Sponsors!


Swickers is a pork processing plant based in Kingaroy that has been in operation for over 50 years. This state of the art facility processes fresh pork and distributes widely across Australia and internationally. Swickers is the only Export Accredited pig abattoir in Queensland, with their quality pork in high demand by both local and export customers. The value-add facility at this site is equipped with the latest technology, preparing cooked, smoked and cured products for market to highest quality standards. Located at Swickers, the SunPork Fresh Foods Wholesale team are responsible for the sales and delivery of products to the many butcher shops and wholesalers we service daily with fresh and value-added pork products. After a large fire in November 2016, parts of Swickers were completely burnt to the ground. These sections were then rebuilt and reopened in June 2017. This state of the art processing facility is now bigger than ever and has been reconstructed with additional facilities and specialty equipment allowing them to grow their product ranges and pork supply both locally and internationally. Their support and commitment to BaconFest is the stuff of legend, just like their product. Thank you so very much!


A huge thank you to Steggles for their strong support of Kingaroy Baconfest Smoke Off comp! We love our chicken almost as much as we love bacon (a bacon-topped chicken parmy could just about be our second favourite meal...) Thanks Steggles - you're helping Kingaroy Baconfest in becoming one of Australia's best regional food festivals!
