About Buy Emergency Foods
Buy Emergency Foods was founded in 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and offers a very wide variety of freeze-dried and dehydrated food products. Most Internet emergency food companies stick to food only. However, this company also offers Fuel, Survival Kits and Water Storage sections on its website. One really nice benefit you receive that the company’s competition does not usually offer is free shipping on all orders, all the time.
Another innovative strategy involves free gifts when you buy many products, rewarding you with disaster preparedness emergency items that complement your main purchase. The company also delivers a free Food Storage Buyer’s Guide, bulk discounts and a guarantee of the lowest online price per calorie. Ordering is available both online and via a toll-free telephone number.
