Easy Meal’s Long Shelf Life Food

Easy Meal’s shelf life of 10+ years means you can trust our meals to taste amazing when you need them most. Thanks to our state-of-the-art freeze-drying process, we’re able to preserve all of the original nutrition and flavor of our food products.

You never know when a disaster is going to strike. Thanks to our meal kits’ long shelf life and compact design, Easy Meal is an excellent solution for your long-term food storage needs.

While our meals are proven to taste great 10 years after their production, our tests show that Easy Meal products can last even longer. That’s because our freeze-drying process allows us to preserve all the original qualities of the food without any sort of preservatives.

That being said, it’s important to follow all recommendations for storage to ensure your food maintains its freshness and quality. Learn more about how to store our products.
