RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – A local sausage maker is breaking into the bacon market.
Sausage Craft, a wholesale sausage producer on Dabney Road, is rolling out Salt Pork, a line of smoked and cooked meats.
Chris Mattera, who launched the business about three years ago with partner Brad Hemp, said the new products are ready-made for sandwiches and entrees. They mark a departure from the fresh, raw sausage the company sells to a few dozen restaurants and markets across town.
