Emergency Food Storage has worked closely with the Fuel Your Preparation range to bring you these fantastic meals. Fuel Your Preparation is cooked and tinned in the UK by the makers of Mountain House. The best processes and freeze-drying techniques have been able to create great tasting long life food without compromising on quality or nutrition, engineered with your emergency food needs in mind.
All the Fuel Your preparation products are manufactured in a custom build UK facility with the strictest of care and safety.
All Fuel Your Preparation tins will last up to 25 years (and beyond if stored well). They are light in weight and easy to store and include a resealable plastic lid so once opened your food stays fresh for up to seven days. We recommend tins are stored in a room that does not get too hot or too cold as extreme temperature fluctuations can reduce lifespan. The tins come with loose food inside, so you just scoop out what you need, add water and wait a few minutes then eat. We recommend about 100G of freeze dried food to make a good sized meal once rehydrated.
All Fuel Your Preparation pouches will last up to 7 years ( and beyond if stored well). Extremely light in weight and easy to store each meal is individually packed for maximum freshness and flexability. As with tins, we reccomened storing the pouches in a room which doesn't experience extreme temperature ranges. As with the tins the pouches come with loose food inside so you just add water and eat. Each pouch is roughly 100g, the perfect size for one meal.
Fuel Your Preparation freeze-dried foods are easy to prepare - just add hot water...wait 10 minutes...and eat! If a heat source is not available, room temperature or cold water can be used, too. Because no cooking is needed, these foods require much less water and fuel than most fresh, frozen or dehydrated foods (further conserving these two precious commodities.)
Fuel Your Preparation freeze-dried foods are packed in airtight NITROGEN PACKED #10 cans or pouches. Up to 98% of the residual oxygen has been removed, and oxygen absorbers are added to remove the rest of the oxygen. The unique canning process uses both vacuum-nitrogen flushing and oxygen absorbers. This is a time consuming and slightly more costly process...but well worth it. It is the same process mandated by the U.K. Military. Fuel Your Preparation foods have the longest shelf life available...up to 25 years for the cans. If the tins are stored in a temperate environment and away from strong light they have been tested to last up to and beyond 25 years.
Each of our cans is coated with a protective layer inside and out for double protection, including the lid. The cans contents are protected until you are ready to open and use them. After opening, we recommend using the contents within 1 to 2 weeks for best results and taste; using the convenient resealable plastic lid between uses. Treat any leftover food as you would fresh food.
