About Food Insurance
Food Insurance was launched in 2009 by its parent company, Daily Bread. Daily Bread started out as a door-to-door sales company, and management decided to launch an online retail company under a different name. Food Insurance has enjoyed terrific success because of its simple product offering, high quality, and of course, early affiliation with Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity (currently, these radio hosts no longer actively endorse Food Insurance).
A few years ago, Food Insurance / Daily Bread were purchased by the Canadian company Freeze Dry Foods. With the acquisition, Food Insurance is no longer a reseller of Mountain House food, but is now an original manufacturer of emergency food products. In fact, the only two USDA certified companies that can freeze dry meat are Mountain House and Freeze Dry Foods (parent company of Daily Bread and Food Insurance).
Although Food Insurance is the name of the company, the Daily Bread brand was retained for all food storage products. The freeze-dried food still has a thirty-year shelf life, and it is still stored in #10 cans.
Last year, the company launched a line of pouch products called Campfire Meals in order to better compete head-to-head against Mountain House. Don’t be surprised if you see this brand on some of the inner packaging. Don’t worry, they all come from the same food processing factories at Freeze Dry Foods in Canada.
Additionally, Food Insurance is one of the first emergency food companies to take nutrition seriously. All of the emergency food storage plans are crafted to provide the U.S. recommended daily allowances for vitamins and minerals and stay within the limits of more harmful ingredients such as sugar and sodium.
Food Insurance really raised the bar in the emergency food storage world, and they deserve credit for making this important product more acceptable to a mainstream audience. Food Insurance has excellent customer service and provides an outstanding solution for emergency preparedness. Food Insurance products are a smart mix of more expensive freeze-dried items containing real meats and cheeses and less-expensive dehydrated products such as granola and dried fruit. Food Insurance has also wisely resisted the urge to sell everything possible and keeps its product offering simple, neat and easy to understand.
Another interesting things about Food Insurance is how innovative its food storage products are. Currently, Food Insurance is one of the only companies to offer “pay-as-you-go” plans and “build-your-own” plans, which allow you to select only the foods you want.
In our opinion, Food Insurance is one of the best companies in the food storage industry. It pioneered the acceptance of emergency products for the masses through its advertising relationships with well-known celebrities. Also, all of Food Insurance’s products come from Freeze Dry Foods, one of the only USDA certified manufacturers of real meat products. If you want high quality emergency food and supplies, then Food Insurance is the right place to go.
