***CURRENT INVENTORY UPDATE AS OF 03/20/11*** All Mountain House & Nitro-Pak food storage #10 cans are in EXTREMELY HIGH DEMAND due to national & world current economic uncertainty and inflation fears. With this increase in demand, our food order processing times have greatly increased also. As Mountain House’s leading distributor, we are receiving HUGE shipments WEEKLY to fill our customer orders, but demand exceeds the available supply. Most Mountain House dealers have been been cut off & receive no food, period. Supplies are VERY SCARCE. Like Disneyland, the line is long but still slowly moving. Please be patient. This is a line you do not want to get out of! IMPORTANT: We want you to clearly understand that your unit WILL come in multiple shipments and NOT ALL AT ONE TIME.
Emergency Food Panic
March 1, 2011
Big John Lipscomb
I have been in the preparedness business for a while now and I have never seen such a run on dehydrated and freeze dried food as there is right now. Every preparedness food company, including us are running at least three weeks behind and that delay will only increase over the next several weeks. I would not be surprised to see a delay of 8 weeks before the end of May 2011.
We had to hire several new employees this week just to keep from falling further behind than 3 weeks. I have double checked with all the competitors and found that they too are running almost a month behind.
Rumors are flooding the preparedness industry that the big company- Mountain House is about to cease selling to the general public because they have a federal government contract to stock up food for a coming economic collapse late Spring or early summer.
If the general public knew how much emergency food was being sold or how many people are buying it, you'd know how serious the situation is right now. Production is running 24/7 and it cannot keep up with demand. One reason is that many pastors have finally awakened and are encouraged church members to stock up food supplies for tribulation- (see Middle East situation).
Dear Valued Customers:
In response to the recent concern of FEMA purchasing Mountain House products:
FEMA posted the following RFI (Request for Information) on 1-20-2011. In the RFI, FEMA was asking for information for 14M/day for 10 days. They then withdrew the RFI on 1-27-11. The RFI is a request for information only. It is not an order. In addition, this RFI was never sent to Mountain House. This is to confirm that Mountain House is not supplying FEMA or any other Government agency with Mountain House #10 cans or pouches.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) procures and stores pre-packaged commercial meals to support readiness capability for immediate distribution to disaster survivors routinely. The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations.
As you know we have removed #10 cans from our website temporarily. The reason for this is sales of #10 cans have continued to increase. OFD is allocating as much production capacity as possible to this market segment, but we must maintain capacity for our other market segments as well.
Currently we are able to meet demand for Mountain House pouches and most of these products are still available for purchase on our website. We do have a small number of dealers that we will continue to make and ship #10 cans to and you will need to contact them directly to place an order. For a list of dealers, please contact us at MH-Info@ofd.com
We expect this situation to be necessary for several months although this isn’t a guarantee. We will update this information as soon as we know more. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience. We sincerely hope you will continue to be Mountain House customers in the future.

MH was really busy a year ago but demand has exceeded production. Just like there are more members coming to ATS, people are waking up more and more. It's not a bad idea to get your order on que if you are want to have some preparations before it really becomes a real cluster. While you are waiting for that, learning some old time skills would be a good idea as well. Spring is on and you can do yourself some good spending time outdoors to experiment with off grid living. Recently I've been cooking more with cast iron cookware and alternate heat sources. It's been really nice and my kids like it too.
" Due to our obligation to fufill a contract with the United States Government, We regret to inform our distributors and retailers that. Due to the size of the contract we will not be able to take or fill any other orders until this contract is filled. We are sorry for any inconvinences this causes. It is our hopes to have this contract filled and to be able to again begin taking non-government orders again sometime in mid or late march. Again we apologize for any problems this may cause.

Subject: Darwinian socialism: Gov signs 10-year contract with Mountain House Foods, largest survival food producer in U.S., to absorb 99% of their production for the next 10 years.
According to Joel Skousen, editor of World Affairs Brief, the Federal Government has just signed a 10-year contract with Mountain House Foods, the largest survival food producer in the U.S., to absorb 99% of their production for the next 10 years. Prior to this, the U.S. government had been purchasing 10% of their production.
Added to the burden of credit of American citizenry, this is purchased and stored under the ‘continuity of government’ idea – which translates that it is not for you and me, but for whomever the central banking cartel decides is worth keeping alive.
I’ve brought food storage up to the Elko County Local Emergency Planning Committee, but have found that DHS money is only provided for crowd control training and anti-terrorist technology.
Aside from that, the idea is generally scoffed at among the heads of emergency services.
Amazingly, when we were shown the list of potential terrorist targets to be concerned with, public utilities were not listed.
As usual, I was the only one to point out this was unacceptable.

Don't worry about buying this stuff. Since it is so back ordered, go get regular canned food now.
