Questions on 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit

Sort by Descending
  • From Suzy Hogan at 11/4/12 11:58 AM
    • What is the shelf life for this package? Do the different items last different times?
    • Thank you for the question. The shelf life is 7 years from the date of manufacture. We're constantly replenishing our stock of freeze dried food, so you can expect the kit to have been in our warehouse no more than a few months.

      Only freeze dried organic fruit snacks and freeze dried ice cream have a shorter shelf life than 7 years (they're good for two years), so you do not have to worry about different expiration dates within the 72 hour kit. Thanks.

Albany, OR (PRWEB) October 06, 2014
New testing by the Sensory Science Laboratory at Oregon State University has found the food pouches of Mountain House, the leading provider of freeze dried foods for outdoor recreation and long-term storage, offer a 20-percent longer shelf life than previously verified. The third-party testing, which Mountain House commissions on a regular basis to ensure their rigorous standards are met, showed a 12-year shelf life, compared to the 10-year shelf life previous testing had proved in 2012.

This represents the longest independently verified shelf life in the industry.

For those looking to Mountain House for emergency preparedness or other long-term food storage needs, the brand’s food packaged in #10 cans offers a verified 25-year shelf life and has been a popular choice for decades. This latest testing on Mountain House foods packaged in proprietary pouches shows them to be another viable option for long-term storage. The pouches also provide greater variety, easier storage, and more convenient serving sizes.
