National Preparedness Month: Wise Food Storage


Last week, I had the wonderful experience of touring the manufacturing facilities of one of our trusted partners, Wise Food Storage. It was a great experience! I'll give a little background as to why we chose Wise Food Storage in the first place.

For quite some time, I had been looking for a viable product that would stand the test of time, especially since we specialize in the Berkey Water Purification Systems. It only made sense that we would offer viable food storage options in addition to our Emergency Seedbanks and other preparedness products. After extensive research among dehydrated and freeze-dried food companies and after speaking with them, we decided that Wise Food Storage was a good fit for our customers in the United States…fast forward to today.

September is National Preparedness month. The reality is that we should always be prepared! Well, I wasn't prepared for how thorough the folks at Wise Food Storage are in the manufacturing and distribution of their products, WOW! When I arrived at their Utah manufacturing facility, the weather outside was hot. Once inside the building, the temperature was a nice contrast to the heat. I was escorted throughout the facility and donned the customary booties, gown, and cap. I maintained a comfortable distance with the protective observation barriers in front of me.

I observed that their complete operation exceeds regulatory compliance standards in packaging and production. One example is the content within the individual packages. Wise Food Storage has an exhaustive amount of quality assurance standards and practices which ensure not only that each individual package exceeds weight requirements, but that nothing but the best quality food storage meals results in every packet and container. The demand for Wise Food Storage is mind-boggling!

My visit to the facility lasted one half-hour, and it was well worth it. Getting the opportunity to have a first-hand tour of the products we distribute was a great experience. The fact that I personally use Wise Food Storage made it even more meaningful.

    […] Wise Food Storage – looks like a solid company from which to start or enhance your survival food supply. I personally have never purchased food from them before but probably will after reading this article. Until now my only emergency food purchase has been from Nitro-Pak, a solid company as well. My advice is to just choose one and take the leap instead of waiting any longer. The potential future benefits and peace of mind far outweigh the price tag. […]
