Safecastle: The prepper's choice since 2002

M. Brooks: "The service is incredible; each time I have contacted Safecastle, I get an immediate response. The owner's always been kind, considerate and very professional and stands behind his word. The membership perks--phenomenal. Safecastle is really a ministry to those trying to prepare ... truly a first rate outfit, selling quality products at a reasonable price, owned and operated by a man who has a servant’s heart."
William J.: "... getting 25% off MH cases wasn't enough. Now you're getting me over 50% off this purchase! You've saved me a bunch of money. Thanks for your outstanding shop and such great prices. Ya'll have one of the greatest operations going … and believe me, I DO shop around."
Jeffrey P.: "Excellent customer service is so rare these days that when you experience it you are somewhat surprised. As a fellow business owner, I certainly appreciate and applaud the manner in which you run your business. Being able to resolve this matter at 9:48 on a Friday evening is simply incredible."

M.M.: "I just want you to know how awesome and fast your shipping and service is. I think you already know this, but it doesn't hurt to mention it :) There are a couple of other major online stores that I placed orders over 6 weeks ago that have yet to ship. You all must be very hard working folk. Thanks!"

Dave W: "Thank you so much for running a store that provides excellent customer service andsome I didn't even  sells quality products at reasonable prices. The Steelhead Adventure medical kits came today and I am once again impressed. I have shopped at other preparedness websites and I have yet to come across one that is as responsive to customers and potential customers as yours is. I have sent emails a couple times to you asking for more information when trying to compare products. You have always answered my questions fully as well as answering think to ask. Keep up the good work."

C.W.: "Wow! You guys are even greater than the greatness you have already proven to me!!"

J.H.: "Great customer support! Amazing deals and bonuses! Thank you."

Craig: "Wow, what a sale! Thanks!"

Steve: "You have very good customer service and I am recommending your company to everyone I know ... I wish all business people I deal with were this good. You are sure to be a continued success."

AR: "God bless you, sir, for helping people put a little food security into their future. I was pleased with the purchases made with your company. You are good people, and I'm proud to know you."

In 1989 the food reserves division of AlpineAire Foods was developed and introduced to address the growing need for high quality, convenient, familiar, and real shelf stable food products. Gourmet Reserves was created to meet the needs of individuals or organizations that desire to be self-sufficient during a situation where normal food supplies are not readily available.

The emphasis is on nutritious freeze-dried, instant, and specially dehydrated foods that include both a wide variety of exciting complete meal recipes, and many individual items. Gourmet Reserves is acknowledged as an industry leader and sets the standards for full variety, wholesome, and beneficial food reserves.

In an industry that sees numerous small scale canneries come and go depending on shifting economic conditions, AlpineAire as an established and trusted industry leader, can be depended upon to be available in the future to assist you, as it has been since 1979. Reliability and continuity of service is essential when one makes a significant investment in a food reserve program.

The advantages of Gourmet Reserves shelf stable foods include:

100% No Cooking Required Gourmet Supreme Systems of 1 year - 6 months - 3 months - 1.5 months are unique and very convenient.

Eat as is, or just add hot or cold water, depending on the item. For many folks it is often difficult during prolonged emergency situations to adjust to a dramatic change in diet. It is also difficult to predict the time and conditions available for meal preparation, and water availability. No cooking required, just-add-water meals make efficient use of what could be a limited supply of water. Systems are assembled to supply both your long-term and short-term needs.

Familiar Foods

It is essential that emergency food reserves be familiar and digestible and enjoyed by both adults and children. Why invest in foods that you consider eating only for survival - foods that you would not normally want to eat. You are encouraged to enjoy Gourmet Reserves foods anytime. Rotation into your normal eating patterns is recommended.

Extensive Variety

105 entrees, breakfasts, side dishes, soups, and individual items are available. Two can sizes are produced depending on the item. An extensive variety of no-cook products, the largest selection in the industry, and basic commodities are offered.

Superior Nutrition with Healthy Natural Ingredients

Provided by freeze-drying, other specialized drying methods, and current food technologies utilizing high quality ingredients.

Freeze-dried Meats Included

A selected number of entrees and individual items contain real beef, chicken, and turkey, with a long shelf life possible only by freeze-drying. AlpineAire is one of the very few recreational and emergency shelf-stable food manufacturing establishments to be federally inspected to comply with the strictest USDA standards for truthfulness in labeling, ingredient conformity, wholesomeness, and cleanliness.

A Long Shelf Life

Industrial quality sealed and specially coated cans with an extremely low residual oxygen atmosphere, is unquestionably the best method available for ensuring a long shelf life for freeze-dried/dehydrated foods. Superior canning techniques at AlpineAire's 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Northern California, utilizes the latest canning technologies.

In 1990 AlpineAire Foods pioneered the use of oxygen absorbers in food reserves, and AlpineAire was the first preparedness products cannery to use this significant technological advance in providing oxygen reduced atmospheres in sealed containers. AlpineAire continues to put oxygen absorbers in each of its canned and pouched products helping to ensure the freshest shelf stable foods possible. Depending on specific foods, shelf life can be up to 30 years.

Foods and Recipes of Proven Value

LG.: "Wow is all I can definitely made a customer for life and I will be posting how well you have taken care of this issue on facebook ...I  will also be spreading the word to all of my biker and survival friends ... I'm still at a loss for words other than thank you very much and I am sure karma will be giving back to you two-fold.

Gail S.:
"Your Customer Service is amazing. I've never seen anything like it. Thank you for that and for your excellent products and deals."

As a 15-year veteran of the customer service industry, I have always worked to provide my customers with World Class Service. As a result, I hold the yardstick VERY high when I find myself in the role of befuddled customer. In the 18 hours since I became a customer, Safecastle has gone light years beyond my every expectation. Quick response to my emails, willingness to explore all possible resolutions, and the way they took OWNERSHIP of my issues (no matter how small) have all astounded me. I honestly wish I had found Safecastle sooner, so I could have already told everyone who would listen where they can find truly World Class Service."

N.S.: "Wow. Thanks for the quick response. I must say, Jack Spirko's endorsement of your business caused me to choose you over any competitors, and he is spot on about your customer service. Thanks so much!"

Judie: "Thank you for making shopping so easy ... and the sale prices so good!"

Adam: "Thank you! You're running a great business."

Ed F: "I wanted to thank you for the way you run your business and the service you provide. It is a pleasure to do business with you. You treat customers like friends and it is appreciated. My last purchase, the AEB Ox, happened because your personal recommendation in an email got me to look more carefully at it. Thanks."

Al M. (via BBB): "This is the best customer service I've received from any company anywhere. Fast service. Pricing is always fair and sometimes great! They do what they say they will do and have never let me down. This is a world class organization."

Janet: "I have found it a great experience doing business with your company, not only today, but also in the past. It is a pleasure to find a company today that takes care of their customers. You present great products and offer very nice savings opportunities to your membership. I have shared this message with my friends and they have place orders and were pleased. Thank you and may your business be blessed."
