California is a wonderful place to live. We’ve have sunshine 300 days of the year. We have the beach, the mountains, the desert, world-class hiking and camping and skiing. You can sail. You can surf. You can even surf and ski on the same day. We’ve got Disneyland and Magic Mountain and water parks and skate parks. We’ve got amazing food and nightlife. California has everything.
But all of that comes with a price. California also has earthquakes and wildfires and mudslides when it rains. We’ve got traffic that turns major freeways into parking lots. We’ve even got the occasional flood.
You purchase car insurance, health insurance, life insurance, earthquake insurance, flood insurance, fire insurance, and homeowner’s insurance. Why wouldn’t you purchase food insurance as well?
California Emergency Preparedness offers the best “food insurance” on the planet and the reason is simple: we offer the highest quality, best tasting, and longest-lasting storable food on the market and we make sure to do it at the best prices.
What makes good long term food storage?
Our food overcomes common food storage problems that our competitors simply don’t address.
Low Oxygen & Moisture
Oxygen, moisture, and oil are enemies of your long-term food storage. Oxygen and moisture allow bacteria and mold to flourish, and oils break down, turn rancid, and spoil over time.
California Emergency Preparedness is the exclusive retailer of Eden Valley Farms, the highest quality, best tasting, and longest lasting emergency food on the market.
Their food is flushed with nitrogen before being sealed in heavy-duty industrial-grade poly mylar pouches. Nitrogen dispels oxygen thereby eliminating even the possibility of bacterial growth which could spoil your precious food storage. The lack of oxygen also maintains the fresh taste of our food over the years.
Many of our competitors recipes contain ingredients with high moisture or water content- sometimes up to 20%! All of our recipes contain less than 5% moisture (ideally shelf-stable long-term storage food should contain less than 7%). We accomplish this by sourcing only the finest shelf-stable freeze-dried and dehydrated ingredients directly from reputable grade-A sources.
Shelf Stable Oils
The chemical bonds of many common processed oils (like vegetable or canola) break down over time and turn rancid. This chemical break-down spoils and destroys food. This is why we never use processed oils or shortenings in its long-term food storage meals. We use only the highest quality shelf-stable tropical oils like Palm or Coconut Oil and only when our recipes call for it. We never use hydrogenated oils, syrups or shortenings. Never.
Compare our competitors’ ingredient lists to ours. You’ll find that we use only the finest natural ingredients and never load our food with preservatives or chemicals like MSG or silicon dioxide. We use the finest natural flavors, spices, and sea salt. This makes our food both healthy and flavorful.We work shoulder-to-shoulder with our Food Scientists in order to craft the tastiest meals and to ensure that they will last up to 25 years on your shelf or in your basement. We never use middlemen. We own the manufacturing process from start to finish and we go directly to the source for our ingredients. This enables us to maintain the strictest quality control and pass savings on to you that our competitors only dream of. We want to make sure that our food will be there to sustain you and your family when you really need it and if we wouldn’t serve it to our kids, we wouldn’t sell it to you.
California Emergency Preparedness is simply the best on the market. We use no MSG, our products contain no trans-fats, no hydrogenated oils or shortenings, and are almost entirely GMO-free. We have options that are gluten free too! Many of our recipes are low in sodium and we use only the highest grade sea salt, spices, and natural flavors. Our food tastes like it came from your local farmer’s market. Plus it’s kid-friendly and parent-approved!
Look for these icons on our product page, and know you are getting a quality product!
Our food is nitrogen flushed before being sealed in resealable industrial-grade poly mylar serving pouches. Our mylar pouches are superior to other typical packaging like metal cans or glass jars. Metal cans can rust, and are heavy and take up space. Glass jars are fragile and heavy, and don’t always seal. Mylar packages are light, take up less space, and maximize freshness.
