About Emergency Essentials
Emergency Essentials is one of the oldest and most respected food storage and emergency preparedness companies. As their website says, Emergency Essentials started out mainly as a catalog company. However, the company now has several retail stores throughout Utah and a very robust online presence. Their online web address is very appropriate: www.beprepared.com
Emergency Essentials basically sells any type of emergency preparedness product you could ever need. Food storage, containers, tools, water filtration, radios, heat sources, and seeds are just some of the broad product categories the company offers. And if you live in Utah, you can stop by one of their retail stores and check out the products for yourself.
For food storage, Emergency Essentials mainly resells Mountain House brand freeze-dried food coupled with their own private label brand called Provident Pantry. The Provident Pantry items are mainly bulk ingredients such as vegetables and fruits while the Mountain House entrees are traditional ready-to-eat meals.
We have a very high opinion of Emergency Essentials, and you can feel safe purchasing from them. They also have a 30-day unconditional satisfaction guarantee and a one-year warranty on non-food items. Finally, Emergency Essentials has one of the best checklists for deciding which food storage option is best for you. You can read it here here.
In the past 2 years, Emergency Essentials has been through a few rounds of re-branding, with the latest coming in the Summer of 2014. While their look has changed, they offer the same great service we’ve grown to respect.
