About Mountain House
Oregon Freeze Dry is the actual name of the company that produces the Mountain House brand of freeze-dried food. Mountain House has been around for so long that most people don’t even know Oregon Freeze Dry is the actual name of the company.
Mountain House is literally the godfather of the freeze-dried food industry. It first started making food for General Mills and later for the Department of Defense back in the 1960′s. Ever wonder how all of these food storage companies can claim their products have 25 year + shelf lives? It’s because they refer to actual Mountain House product that really was packaged back in the 1980′s.
Many food storage retailers will either resell Mountain House freeze-dried products or include them in their food storage packages. Mountain House is the best, but it is also on the more expensive side. And don’t bother trying to get Mountain House cheaper by going straight to the company’s website. Mountain House has strict MAP (minimum advertised price) pricing it enforces on itself to ensure the integrity of its distributor relationship.
In the past year, Mountain House has made more of an effort to truly market its own products rather than rely on the traditional reseller market. We expect to see this continue in the future. We also believe Mountain House will get “choosier” in regards to which resellers it will do business with.
In our opinion, Mountain House food is the gold standard in freeze-dried food. You can absolutely be sure the product is great tasting and will last at least 25 years. Since the Mountain House website rarely advertises discounts, we recommend checking with one of their best resellers, Nitro-Pak, to find the best deals on this amazing food.
