They started making super-duper freeze-dried food for the United States Special Forces. Fast forward to 1969, and ta-da, Mountain House was born. These meals have traveled to crazy places – from mountain tops to the moon!

The story of Mountain House begins with a crucial mission for the United States Special Forces during the Vietnam Conflict. The military sought food that was not only more palatable but also had an extended shelf life and reduced weight compared to traditional rations. Oregon Freeze Dry, the parent company of Mountain House, answered the call and secured the contract to produce Long Range Patrol rations. As the surplus rations reached military surplus and sporting goods stores in 1969, it became evident that there was a significant demand from consumers for high-quality, easy-to-prepare freeze-dried food.

Over the years, Mountain House meals have accompanied adventurers to the most extreme locations, from the North and South poles to towering mountain ranges worldwide, and even to the moon and back. The brand's reliability and enduring popularity are evident in its five-star rating, backed by over 2,100 reviews.
