The typical shelf life for can products is 3 years.
Also, if the can becomes dented the shelf life decreases and never eat from a can that has rust on it.

Anyone in U.K. know of distributors that will ship to, or within our fair isle?
Individual MREs are a little too expensive and companies such as eFoods won't ship. Suggestions please?
Not doubting you, but I know that a lot of military members here on ATS can tell you about eating C rations that were a lot older than three years. I know I chowed down on some in the 1980s that were dated from Vietnam.

Your best bet is to store non-perishable items, such as dry goods and water. Then all you need is a fire, which shouldnt be too difficult to do.
Tho canned goods will last awhile, they wont last anywhere near as long as dry goods can. Plus canned goods take up alot of room and weight, where as dry goods can be compacted and are lightweight.
