One of my early guests on DestinySurvival Radio was Mike Porritt, Online Marketing Director for ShelfReliance.com, now THRIVE Life. They’ve got food rotation systems as well as storage food.
Update: Mike is no longer in the position mentioned above.
Mike said the company encourages self reliance with the products they offer. Not only do they have Cansolidators and other stand alone units for organizing and storing food, they have their own long term storage food, now called THRIVE. Plus, they carry other emergency kits and supplies.
THRIVE Life offers food rotation systems that hold as little as 20 cans or as many as 300 or more. What struck me is that, if you’re serious about having a survival pantry, you don’t have to build one. The stand alone units offered are sturdy, hold large amounts of food, and they’ll serve your purpose very well.
There’s a food rotation system to suit your needs.
You can fill up your food storage system with canned food from the supermarket, or you can buy THRIVE food storage. The Thrive storage food comes in color coded cans, which is another clever idea for keeping your food storage organized.
Thrive includes grains, vegetables, fruit, dairy, meat and beans, entrees, desserts and basics, like baking ingredients and drink mixes.
Mike emphasized the importance of having storage that tastes good. You don’t want to buy something for long term storage that you won’t eat unless you absolutely have to.
One of his favorites is the freeze dried pineapple, which he says is as good as candy to snack on. I’ve had it, and I agree.
On the company’s site, you’ll find several articles and videos on the basics of food storage, food rotation, info about their budget plan, and more.
For those interested in a business opportunity, you could become a consultant and have home parties. What a great way to introduce family and friends to prepping for survival!
At the end of my show that day, I spoke for a few minutes with James Talmage Stevens (Doctor Prepper). He said he’d been to the Shelf Reliance (now THRIVE Life) headquarters, and they were doing a brisk b usiness.
