Using a combination of his skills as a chef and the best of Ireland’s produce the story of Scratch My Pork began…
Matt’s creation went on to become an award winning snack which he developed in Skibbereen, County Cork, a natural product made 100% from pork rind, which when cooked to specific temperatures with unique spices results in a crunchy, crispy, flavoursome and nutritious snack…Pork Crackling with an Irish twist!
