Long-term food storage is an important aspect to consider when building your emergency food supply. Not only do you want foods that will last in the long term and provide you with the proper amount of servings for your group, but they should also be easy to store, too.
Our meal kit kit packaging features a compact design that’s filled with our tasty freeze dried foods and can be stacked on top of one another to maximize space. Thanks to their lightweight construction, these kits are easy to lift and move around to meet your specific space needs. And, thanks to the long shelf life of 10 years, these meals can be stored away until needed.
