dissapointed with the state of the box when it arrived. was torn and one of the tins were dented. please DO NOT have your website printed on the outside of the box. some people do not want their neighbours knowing they have ordered from you.
I was impressed with the choice available and the speed with which the order was fulfilled (3 working days from placing order).
However the negative is the boxes which the items are delivered in are not plain but do have the EmergencyFoodStorage logo and website address on. As I was not in at delivery time my order was left by the courier with a neighbour who kindly accepted it for me.
Whilst this may not appear to be a big issue, I want privacy surrounding deliveries, especially ones like this. If you had ordered gold on the internet would you write on the package "look huge gold bar inside"? No, didn't think so!
With this being my first order with Emergency Food Storage.co.uk, I rang them with a list of questions about the products, price and delivery. There were a couple of things that the person I spoke to was unable to answer exactly, so he arranged for me to be called back promptly. I was - from America - and given all the help I needed. The goods were delivered in excellent condition and precisely when promised. I do not hesitate in recommending them and will certainly place future orders with them.
Your service was fine and when some bent tins appeared upon arrival (one posibley punctured) you replaced it with no difficulties or delays.
However may we suggest that given the issue of longivity and that the tins will always occasionally get bent or punctured - that you better reduce this possibility by more substantual bubble wrap packing or something simular to protect the cans. A puncture in a creased tin is not always so easily detectable. It also looks bad but more importantly could seriously affect the extended life of it's contents. - Hope that helps
Very pleased with the service which I received. It was quick, packaged well and is very well organised company. The food is nutritious and tasty and is ideal for long term prepping or survival trips.
I've purchased a number of items from Emergency Food Storage and have been more than happy with their speedy secure delivery and good quality products. Cheapest I found for a number of items.
Overall very happy and will continue to use them.
As Church members we are counselled to have an Emergency Pack
available in the event of the need to leave home at short notice perhaps for short periods of time, due to natural disasters. This seems to be the only firm catering specifically for this requirement on the internet.
I found the website clear and comprehensive. The various meals appear to be appetising and well balanced nutritionally. As I have bought them for emergencies, they will stay packed up as I received them until required. Those I purchased have a shelf-life of around five years, so failing emergencies in that period, my wife and I will sample them at the dinner table in a few years time!
Have used this company a few times now and the only time there was a problem (not their fault but the carriers) they still managed to resolve the problem to my satisfaction,Exellent all round service and good value too.
I only have good to say. I have found the people willing to answer questions and to adapt orders to my preferences. And when I have made a suggestion (eg Breakfasts) and hey presto now they are available.
As the product name implies, it is an emergency food supply, so we have not had reason to test the quality of the product to date. However, the ordering process and subsequent communication, as well as the delivery were all of a high standard and are worth a good rating! Hopefully, when we do get to test the product, it will be of a similar quality. My 5 star rating is based on this assumption.
Before I ordered I had a few questions, they answered all of them. I found it cheaper elsewhere but they priced matched, and I received the order the next day, very well packed. What more can I say, a very good experience and a very good company in my books.
Very helpful staff. Only reason that I didn't give 5 stars is that I would rather the outer box didn't come plastered with the name of the company. Those of us buying for resilience/prepping/reasons are cautious about people knowing we have long term stores
If you are looking for emergency food storage for what ever reason I can recommend this company. I received just the advice I was looking for and the order was delivered within 24 hours.
Have not tasted food yet, so I cannot comment on quality.
I bought a "six month" supply - a total of 24 cans. I expected that this would provide sufficient food to sustain an active person for the stated period. However, the information on each can states that it contains 8 or 9 helpings (single-course); this works out at just 1 single-course meal per day. Furthermore, it is made clear that the contents of each can should be consumed within a maximum of 1 week. This means that what should be a 26 week supply really is a 24 week supply.
All in all, I am not convinced that this would be sufficient to sustain an active person over 6 months.
On the positive side, cans arrived intact and require only a small amount of storage space.
Emergency Food Storage is a great organisation with their finger on the pulse when it comes to current affairs that are impacting society as a whole.
As a "prepper" this organisation is a great as I was buying US Army MRE's from Ebay which were typically offshore in Germany and quite expensive and not as tasty as EFS Mountain House Range of products.
There is only one other UK based competitor called BPREP and the prices they have are not competitive.
The only suggestion I would have for EFS is that when you send your great products in the post.
Please do not use packing tape that says Emergency Food Storage all over it as when the shumer hits the fan.
It's highly likely that however delivered the parcels will remember as it declares in big letters on each package Emergency Food Storage.
It needs to be more subtle.
I don't want a "great golden horde" of hungry unwashed barbarians trying to kick off my door to get at my goods!
Get it? Got it? Good!
This product is definately worth investing in. Not only for the end of the world doom-mongers, but for any unforseen problem concerning the availability of food, etc caused by bad weather or supermarket shortages.
The website is great and very easy to use. Products are as desribed and arrived very quickly. Really professional company and would happily use again!
My orders were placed and I was kept upto date as to the progress of my orders. The food stuffs in the trial pack were prepared and sampled prior to my second (larger) order and I can assure any new customers that the food is tasty filling and was well recieved by even the fussy members of the family! Thank you for yor prompt efficient and courteous service. I will recomend you and I will be ordering from you in future. Best wishes and good luck in 2012. ANHP
I like the approach and level of info provided on the website. Haven't eaten the food yet (I hope we never have to as I view this as insurance). Delivery arrived just fine.
I have made a number of purchases of Mountain House dried food from them over a period of several years,and have tried a variety of their different meals (main course)-- and I have to say the whole family loved them.
It is reassuring to know that whatever these uncertain times throw at us that we have taken the steps to enable comfortable short term survival in the event of food shortages for whatever reason
+ a good hedge against rampant inflation, the product having a shelf life of 25 years +
A young company who actually put their customers first and stand by their products- kudos to them
We found "emergency food storage" to be a very good company. The web site was very informative and it was easy to order from it. The goods arrived quickly too. All in all an excellent service, we will be using the company again for sure.
Thank you very much for supplying me with the goods as requested. I could not believe how quickly that I recieved them. In excellent condition (no dents etc) as I have previously recieved with purchases from other companies. I noticed your company's advertisement on SKY Channel 200, Edge Media and should have applied for the discount, however as I will be using you again I can always apply then. Thank you for an excellent service and product top marks, all the best Phill.
I was looking for a supply of long storage foods, that could be stored easily & prepared easily. The weather has been getting worse over the past few years, and when it does that is usually when I go to work. Experiance has taught me not to be somewhere different from my lunch especially when your work day can turn into 3 days.
I can't fault the product but I was surprised how long the order processing and delivery times can be - up to several weeks on occasion.
Once you get used to the time scale it's not a problem. I just make sure I've got enough to hand and order more to top up.
Went for the sample pack for a trip we're planning. No problems in ordering the goods, and very quick in receiving them. Their customer service was top notch. Am definately going to use them again...
I had a great shopping experience with "Emergencyfoodstorage.co.uk". The site was very appealing, user friendly and very informative, and they really care about us out there.
I have not tried any of my purchases yet, but have every confidence in them in a emergency. Which is just why I bought them, and I fully intend to add to my cache for the future.
My order was delivered promptly, and with no problems at all.
A great shopping experience I would reccomend to all, and more importantly........... in these uncertain times we need to be prepared.
