Mountain House 30-Year Taste GuaranteeOFD's Research and Development Manager, Drew Heubsch says, “We regularly test Mountain House products stored in real world conditions against our new production, and update our shelf life and Taste Guarantee accordingly," and Norm Jager, Research Advisor at OFD Foods adds, “Temperatures were regularly as high as 80 degrees and occasionally exceeded 100 degrees during summer months. While Mountain House recommends storing its food below 75 degrees, it is reassuring for consumers to know that their Mountain House meals will be delicious, even given a wide range of storage conditions. It’s an investment that will hold its value for decades to come.”
