• Mountain House foods have been a vital part in ensuring the British Short Track Speed Skating Team have the appropriate nutrition available while they travel around the world racing

  • It was a great experience of convenience and all of the tested meals tasted very well.
    The preparation is really easy and the best way I could imagine compared with other ways like canned food.
    The light weight packages are so easy to store in the rucksack and the empty bags can also be used for other waste since they can be tightly closed.

  • I have bought Mountain House in bulk on two separate occasions from European Freeze Dry now and in both cases I was very pleased with the products supplied and the speed of delivery. Thanks.

  • We have had the opportunity to eat freeze dried food from Mountain House during our Adventure Racing seasons 2010 and 2011. Long adventure races, with a nonstop race time up to 6-7 days, required huge amounts of energy. We have learned that our performance is strongly enhanced when we refuel with high quality meals instead of snacks and sugar. Meals from Mountain House are very tasty, yet not too spicy, and easy to handle. If possible, we eat them every race day. Warm if possible, but often we enjoy them cold while on the move. Our favorites include Lasagna. Enjoy your meal!

  • The meals were really good actually. Definitely one of the better that we tried. Thanks again for sending them.

  • I've just competed this weekend in the Rab Mountain Marathon in the Cheviot Hills in Nth England and used the Mountain House freeze dried big pack meals for food, and wanted to say how absolutely brilliant they are. Really tasty, loads of calories, quick and convenient......... I'll be using them again on the OMM in 3 weeks time.

Emergency Food

Emergency Food

Our Freeze Dried Meals and Home Ingredients are not just for outdoor use in fact we recommend that all homes keep a supply in for times of emergency.  Emergency Food in long shelf life and robust packaging means if they are kept under dry, sanitary conditions - such as the larder, garage or basement – the meals last for up to 25 years (tins). Ensuring the tins avoid any damage such as punctures, dents or rust guarantees you will have emergency food when you need it.

Emergencies of any type can happen at any time and by their very nature they often happen without warning. With a little planning ahead you can help reduce the stress of such situations for you, your family and those around you by keeping a contingency supply of Mountain House Meals. Keeping emergency food on hand for an emergency protects you in the same way as car insurance or house insurance does. With a supply of Mountain House freeze dried foods on hand, you can be ready for just about any unexpected crisis. Imagine, for instance, what a lifesaver these foods would be if your electricity supply was knocked out for several days by a storm. With Mountain House products on hand, a camping stove or candle to heat water and a tin opener you can still enjoy a hot, satisfying meal in less than 10 minutes.

Your dietary needs during a crisis are very different from your regular diet as your body requires high energy foods and foods rich in protein.  Our meals have been specially developed to be both high in calorie and protein enriched to provide a slow, sustained energy release rather than quick sugar fixes. Our freeze dried fruits are an ideal choice for emergency situations as they provide the body with the additional fibre and energy it needs.

We have developed the range of Mountain House Meals in tins for this very purpose as they have a proven shelf life of 25 years. The emergency food tins are airtight, water tight and extremely robust. They have the additional convenience of a plastic lid to provide an airtight seal keeping the contents fresh for up to 7 days after opening. To rehydrate the contents simply measure a portion, add boiling water, leave to stand for 8-10 minutes, stir and you have a delicious meal in minutes.

Prepare for the worst with the best…………….Mountain House.
