Freeze dried FOOd military & civilian MRE's Emergency food
Mountain House Freeze Dried Foods
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. As the war began to wind down, we took our surplus rations to military surplus and sporting goods stores, where they rapidly sold out. It was then in 1968 that we realized the great consumer demand for good tasting, easy to prepare freeze dried food and Mountain House was born.
Mountain House makes some of the most flavorful freeze dried foods on the market with a great selection of flavors, convenient packaging and easy to prepare meals. We are happy to provide the best selection of Mountain House food in our area.
MREs are your standard military field ration / food. They are packed with calories, offer a great variety of food and are simply ready to eat. They require no water or preparation like freeze dried foods. They offer an estimated 3-8 year shelf life (but have been tested out to much longer periods of time). There are both civilian and military MREs. most civilian MREs are actually made by the same companies making them for the military but are packaged differently in several ways. A typical MRE contains a main dish, side dish, dessert, cold drink, hot drink, snack or candy, accessory packet (wipe, toilet paper, salt, pepper, sugar, creamer, gum, etc), bread or crackers. Every year, US military MRES have 24 different meals/menus. They come in cases marked "A" or "B", Case "A" contains menus 1-12 and case "B" contains menus 13-24. Every year, the available menus change a little, typically removing a couple of the less popular menus and replacing them with a new menu. We offer both civilian and military MREs at our store.
