Mountain House Food And Meals

Mountain House Food And Meals Logo

Most people don’t know that the Mountain House food and meals brand is actually owned by the Oregon Freeze Dry company, which was incorporated in 1963 in the USA when they started freeze drying fruit for a General Foods cereal.

By the early 1970’s, Oregon Freeze Dry were marketing their own Mountain House® line of freeze dried foods for outdoor recreational use.

During the 1980’s, they grew swiftly as they started to manufacture private label packaged food products, and expanded their food ingredient line.

Oregon Freeze Dry is a world technological leader in freeze drying and their freeze dried ingredients are key components in the products of some of America’s largest food companies.

Mountain House food is considered the gold standard in freeze-dried food by many people because you can be sure the product has a great taste and will last at least 25 years.

Today the Mountain House® brand is a favourite of backpackers, campers and emergency preparation experts.
