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 manfucturing 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. Printed above this manufacturing code is our "Best Used By" date. As long as stored properly, your unopened Mountain House product can exceed the "Best Used By" date. We've tasted pouches that were 30 years old and cans that were 35 years old that were still quite tasty!
Remember, we recommend storing your Mountain House unopened and avoid prolonged exposure to temperatures above 75° (24°C) to maximize shelf life.
