All the supermarkets - Choithrems, Spinneys, Carrefore etc.etc, (except Geant) all have a pork section where you can buy as much pork bacon, and all other pork products,as you heart desires.

Yes, you can get bacon and pork products at Spinneys, Choitrams Waitrose, etc.

Unless you're Muslim, in which case you are forbidden from buying these products
