The Best Survival Food Companies 2023 

Starting an emergency food supply is one of the most important things you can do to get prepared. Yet trying to figure out the best emergency food can be daunting.

For cost, convenience and reliability, it makes sense to buy some meals or kits from brands that specialize in emergency foods.

While there is no one “best” brand of emergency foods, I like some a lot better than others. I’m going to review 5 of the top brands to help you make an informed decision.

Best Overall: Valley Food Storage

They are affordable, have decent nutrition, and have a great variety. I love that you can buy variety kits or kits with just the meals you want.

Best for New Preppers: ReadyWise Food Storage

ReadyWise (previously Wise) is a very well-known emergency food brand that has been around since 2008. One of the best things about them is that none of their meals require cooking.

Best Tasting: Mountain House

Mountain House “Adventure Meals” are well known in the backpacking and thru-hiking community. Over the past several years, they have branched out to include emergency preparedness food kits.

Best Low-Budget Option: Augason Farms

I love them because they have so many options for freeze-dried bulk ingredients, which makes it possible to build nutritious meals for cheap. However, this does take more planning than with other brands.

Best Packaging: Legacy Food Storage

Legacy Food Storage boasts the lowest price per pound of food and has high calories per serving.
