Mountain House is a company with a rich history in providing freeze-dried food, initially developed for the United States Special Forces during the Vietnam Conflict. Responding to the military’s request for improved rations, Oregon Freeze Dry, the parent company, won the contract and began producing freeze-dried meals for the military. In 1969, recognizing the demand from consumers for flavorful and easy-to-prepare freeze-dried food, Mountain House was established. Over the past 50 years, Mountain House meals have been enjoyed on various expeditions, including polar explorations and mountaintop adventures. With their convenient “just add water” preparation, no-mess cleanup, and home-cooked flavors, Mountain House has become a popular choice for camping, backpacking, hiking, and emergency preparedness. The company is located in Albany, Oregon, and its products can be found online and at major sporting goods retailers.
