Mountain House has Fed History
We trace our roots to meals we made for US Special Forces nearly 50 years ago. From the bottom of the ocean to the peak of Everest, we’ve fueled expeditions in every climate and situation. Add in our Taste Guarantee, and you can trust Mountain House to taste delicious. No matter what.
At Mountain House, we trace our roots to meals we made for the United States Special Forces.
During the Vietnam Conflict, the military put out a request for food that tasted better, lasted longer and weighed less than old K and C rations. Our parent Company, OFD Foods, LLC (then called Oregon Freeze Dry) responded to that request and won the contract. We immediately started making freeze dried food as Long Range Patrol rations for the military. We've continued making food for the United States Special Forces and other branches of the military ever since.
As the war began to wind down, we took our surplus rations to military surplus and sporting goods stores, where they rapidly sold out. It was then in 1968 that we realized the great consumer demand for good tasting, easy to prepare freeze dried food and Mountain House was born.
Not to mention, NASA has used Mountain House food since the early days of the Apollo space flights. The food has been to the moon and was on the Space Shuttle.
History's greatest adventures through the last 50 years were fueled by the greatest freeze dried foods known to man. You too can store up that kind of energy reserves for your future achievements -- go Mountain House and write your own tales of glory.
