No, I should'nt think so, The firm is just stating that their animals are not treated with any chemicals e.t.c.
In other words their probably run on an 'organic' basis.

With "branded" bacon in packs - likely. Some of the brands will let you trace the meat back to the stable/pig through a scancode (e.g. fTrace - https://www.ftrace.com/en/gb ) on the pack.
However, I suppose that brand isn't the only one to make that claim on their packs - it may be the only one among the branded bacon packs available in your supermarket, though.
