You are right. This tech is indeed not new. This tech is actually very old. Ancient. And we have already forgotten about it.
1: If you are camping, check to see if there is a running stream nearby. Gypsies and travelers traditionally kept butter and milk from spoiling by placing it in a metal bucket and wedging the bucket between rocks in a running stream.
3: Make a Coolgardie safe. This is an Australian bush invention to keep heat and flies from spoiling meat.
4: Make a mini cellar. Dig a deep square hole in the earth and line it with straw, then with large sheets of corrugated cardboard. You can add a metal lining if you have anything suitable. Make a cover for your cellar out of straw sandwiched between cardboard sheets. You will need to erect a sloping shelter over your mini cellar so rain can run off. Keep vegetables and drinks in your cellar.
