Mountain House: Food the Experts Trust.
For nearly 50 years, consumers have continued to choose Mountain House as their favorite and of freeze dried food for on-the-go adventures, emergency preparedness and survival. With just-add-water convenience, easy no-mess cleanup and home-cooked flavors, Mountain house is the best freeze dried camping, backpacking, hiking and emergency preparedness food money can buy!
- During the Vietnam Conflict, the military put out a request for food that tasted better, lasted longer and weighed less than old K and C rations. Our parent Company, OFD Foods, Inc (then called Oregon Freeze Dry) responded to that request and won the contract. We immediately started making freeze dried food as Long Range Patrol rations for the military. We've continued making food for the United States Special Forces and other branches of the military ever since.
Longest Proven Shelf Life. Period.
The Mountain House Taste Guarantee was created to let you know that we stand behind our shelf-life promise. If your undamaged, properly stored Mountain House meal is not as good as new production for 12+ years in our pouches, or 25+ years in our #10 cans, we will replace that item at no cost to you with the same or equivalent product.
The product manufacturing code appears on the back of Mountain House® pouches and on the bottom of Mountain House® cans. The date in the code represents the date on which the product was packaged. Between January of 2001 and June of 2012, we printed "Best if Used By" dates on the back of each pouch. In the fall of 2012, to better reflect the results of our ongoing sensory and nutrition testing, we began printing "MFG mmm dd yyyy" codes on the back of each pouch.
