As compared to other food storage methods, freeze dried food is the most convenient of all methods but also the most expensive method of a food storage program. Freeze drying is an energy intensive process of deep freezing in a vacuum chamber that forces out all the moisture from the food, much more than dehydrating. By eliminating water and packing in an oxygen-free environment the nutrition and taste are maintained much longer than other methods, usually about 25 years!
This site is not geared toward large quantities, however for large orders please contact Craig. We generally don’t wholesale our products, but for large food orders we can place a custom order to have shipped straight from the factory.
Freeze dried food is not returnable if packaging has been opened!
Mountain House’s 50-year history of using top-quality ingredients, the highest processing standards, and premium packaging materials allows for a shelf life that is unmatched at 30 years for cans and pouches (except ice cream).
Mountain House is the only brand to fully cook their meals before freeze drying. They make their meals like you do at home, in a cookpot (granted theirs are a tad bit bigger), which allows the flavors to mix just right like your meals do at home.
Because they have the longest proven shelf life in the industry and the best flavor, it is easy to see why people consider Mountain House the best survival food money can buy.
Just add boiling water and in about 10 minutes you have a delicious meal. Can be re-hydrated with cold water but be sure the water is potable if you don’t boil it, and it will take about twice as long. After hydration, treat any leftover hydrated food as you would fresh food.
The rest is up to you: store food under dry, sanitary conditions, without prolonged exposure to high temperatures and avoiding any environment that could cause damage to the packaging, such as punctures, dents, or rust. Simply follow these common sense storage tips and you will have emergency food when you need it.
