Wise Company ready-made emergency meals are packed in airtight NITROGEN PACKED pouches, and then encased in durable plastic containers. Our unique packaging process removes the majority of the residual oxygen through a vacuum oxygen removal and nitrogen flushing practice. Wise Company ready-made meals carry a shelf life of up to 25 years, with no rotation needed. That's 25 years without the stress of wondering if your family will have enough good, useable food when emergency strikes.
The outdoor line comes with a 7 year shelf life making it perfect for all of your upcoming camping, backpacking, hunting or other outdoor experiences.
Wise Company product is best stored in dry and cool locations. Optimal storage conditions are in a dry, cool basement-like location of 50-55 degrees. When storing freeze-dry and dehydrated food one should avoid hot and humid locations.
Because our entrees won’t need to be rotated every few years like other food storage products, buying Wise Company meals will save you thousands of dollars in the long-term as the cost of food continues to increase.
Freeze Dry & Dehydration Process
At Wise Company, we take a unique and innovative approach to long-term food storage and emergency preparedness. Our ready-made entrees include both freeze-dried and dehydrated components, depending upon the food component.
Through extensive evaluation, research and testing, we have combined both freeze-dried and dehydrated products together to ensure optimal taste, texture and nutritional value. Expensive ingredients such as peas and other vegetables are generally freeze-dried. Other ingredients like noodles and rice actually taste better when dehydrated.
Freeze-Dry and Dehydration Advantages:
- Food maintains its original flavor, shape, color, and texture
- Food retains its nutritional value
- Food is condensed in size
- With nearly all its water extracted, food is extremely light weight
- With the addition of water, food is quickly and completely reconstituted
- Wise Company customers enjoy peace of mind because of the food’s
long shelf life
The Freeze-Dry Process
In freeze-drying, the product is first flash frozen and then placed in a vacuum drying chamber. This process removes the majority of the water and moistening without affecting the taste, color, form or nutritional value of the food item.
The Dehydration Process
In dehydration, food product moves through a drying chamber where air removes the moisture from the food. This occurs at low temperatures so that the nutritional profile stays intact.
Our unique packaging adds value to our meals by protecting them better and making them easier to store and easier to prepare.
Wise Company’ ready-made meals are packed in airtight NITROGEN PACKED pouches. Our unique packaging process removes the majority of the residual oxygen and immediately flushes the Mylar bag with nitrogen. This simplifies the preparation process by not having to first locate and then remove an oxygen absorber from each individual pouch.
Mylar Family-size 4-serving Foil Pouch
Our unique packaging also adds incredible value to our products by making it easier to store, eat, and further prolong the shelf life of each individual meal. Instead of using #10 cans—which when opened force you to eat enormous amounts of that particular food all at once to prevent rapid spoilage—we package each meal in its own separate mylar pouch, thus eliminating waste. It’s basically a flexible tin can that gives you the ability to eat what you want, when you want.
Square Plastic Container and Grab—and—Go Handle
We take the safe-keeping of your food a step further by adding another layer of security placing these 4-serving pouches into compact, 4- and 5-gallon, square buckets that are very easy to stack and store. Because we don’t waste space by using and boxing #10 cans. Wise Company food storage is much more compact and takes significantly less space. Also, because the buckets are small and light, even children are able to grab and carry a month’s supply of food, if needed. If you are placed in an emergency situation these buckets can also serve several other purposes, such as digging or disposing of waste.
Each container is notched on the bottom to ensure stackability. In no more space than a washer and dryer takes up, you can store enough ready-made meals to feed a family of 6 for a full year.
Typical food storage can take an incredible amount of space to store that most families don’t have. Other food storage companies will want you to purchase a year’s supply comprising as many as 85 large cases of awkward and bulky #10 cans. With Wise Company, in no more space than is taken up by a washer and dryer, you can store enough freeze-dried meals to feed a family of 6 for a full year.
Re-sealable Pull Tab Lid
Have you ever tried to open the lid of a 5-gallon bucket typically used for food storage? As you know it can be a real pain. Wise Company’s unique bucket contains an easy-to-open, easy-to-close re-sealable pull tab lid.
Easy to Prepare
Traditional food storage items can be time-consuming and difficult to prepare. Hours of grinding wheat or soaking beans can be labor-intensive and taxing, not to mention leaving you with a “meal” that’s hardly appetizing. With Wise Company ready-made emergency meals, simply add hot water, wait 12-15 minutes, and you’re ready to eat.
For our outdoor line, simply add hot water directly into the pouch, stir, and reseal the ziploc pouch at the top. Wait up to 12 minutes and you have a delicious, hearty meal to enjoy in the great outdoors.
Official USDA statistics reveal that the average cost to feed a family of 2 adults and 4 children is $14,955.60 per year. Wise Company ready-made meals run approximately $1.60 a serving, making them truly affordable. Our prices are low because we want to help protect your most important asset, your family.
Because our meals have up to a 25-year shelf life and won’t need to be rotated every few years like other food storage products, they will save you thousands of dollars long-term. By investing in Wise Company meals, through the years you will save thousands of dollars. In an emergency, food may be worth more than diamonds or gold.
