Why Thrive?

 About THRIVE™ Food Storage

Ultimate Convenience

The THRIVE food line consists of the same foods you would purchase at the market—fruits, veggies, meats, beans, grains, dairy, and the basics—only with THRIVE you don’t have to dash to the store every time you run out of essential ingredients such as eggs or milk. Read More...

THRIVE has an extended shelf life, so you can store it in your own kitchen or pantry for a long time without worrying about spoilage. When you need an ingredient for one of your daily recipes, simply select the THRIVE product and add it to the mix— just like you would with fresh ingredients. Keeping THRIVE in your kitchen is just like having your own home market, completely stocked with all the food your family loves. The time you save by not rushing back and forth from the local grocery store will be valuable time you can spend doing the activities you enjoy.

Healthy foods that taste deliciously fresh

THRIVE products are all-natural, so naturally they are good for you. Each product is organized into one of six recognized and trusted categories to make it easy for you to maintain a well-balanced diet.. THRIVE foods do not contain harmful additives or preservatives, so you can feel confident that when you eat THRIVE, you are guiding your family to a healthy and happy life.

Delicious, Fresh Tasting Food
The diverse flavors, textures, and colors of THRIVE make eating a rewarding experience. The THRIVE food line currently offers over 100 products that are sure to satisfy all of your cravings. Maybe you yearn for ripe, juicy strawberries or summer-sweet corn that comes and goes with the seasons. With THRIVE, you can have these delicious foods around all year long, so you can be prepared whenever that craving hits. When you think of long-lasting or preserved food, you probably think of bottled veggies that have been pickled past recognition. These stereotypes aren’t true for THRIVE. All THRIVE products are harvested at the peak of perfection and then freeze dried or dehydrated to lock in their freshness, making them the perfect choice for all your cooking, baking, and snacking needs.

THRIVE History

Like so many revolutionary ideas, the story of THRIVE began with a problem. Thrive Life founders, Jason and Lindsay Budge and Steve and Amy Palmer, were frustrated because they spent large amounts of money on food that often spoiled or was wasted. At times it felt as if their hard-earned money was going straight to the trash. They tried purchasing foods that had a longer shelf life, but they got discouraged because many of these foods tasted bland and contained mystery ingredients that were not beneficial to their health.

They believed that one of the keys to maintaining an active, happy lifestyle is to eat healthy foods that contain essential nutrients and fewer additives. However, they didn’t have extra time or money to spend on expensive specialty foods that required additional preparation. As each trip to the supermarket proved unsuccessful, they became more and more discouraged as they realized their options were so limited. They searched tirelessly for foods that offered these desired benefits, but they had a difficult time finding foods that fit their standards of health, taste, and quality. So, they resolved to develop their own line of food that would meet these high standards, and redefine how people think about the health, convenience, and longevity of the food they eat. They knew this was a huge undertaking, but they also knew it could change the quality of life for people around the world. After a year of intense research, rigorous testing, and continual refinement, they introduced THRIVE— a superior line of long-lasting natural foods with impeccable taste and quality that contain the nutrients and flavors essential for healthy living.

They are pleased with how easy it is to cook with and they enjoy the convenience of having so many healthy choices right at their fingertips. Come experience THRIVE today, and enjoy life redefined.

A wise investment funded from your current budget

One question people have about THRIVE is how to work the cost into their current food budget. The answer is simple—reallocation.

It is really that easy! Read More...

Incorporating THRIVE into your daily diet is not just a bright idea because of its convenience, great taste, and high nutritional value, but it can also save you hundreds of dollars each year.

This means that if you spend an average of $600 per month on food, you are wasting approximately $150 dollars on uneaten food. With the extended shelf life of THRIVE foods, you can maximize your budget without wasting your food or hard-earned money.

Peace of Mind
We don’t have to look very far to see that our world is in commotion. Food prices are on the rise and the financial markets are unsettled. We never know what uncertain events the future might bring. We have heard of situations where a natural disaster or public hostility has cut off access to food supplies. We have witnessed the turmoil caused by terrorist attacks. We have watched how a national emergency can leave people in a state of distress and lawlessness. Perhaps the most common disasters we experience are the ones that occur in everyday life—job loss, accident, or economic hardship. These times can leave us feeling afraid and helpless, wondering how we’re going to provide for the basic necessities of life. Investing in long-lasting, healthy foods can bring peace of mind to you and your family, no matter the situation. Having a sufficient supply of THRIVE will give you a sense of security during good times and help you go from surviving to thriving, even during the toughest of life’s circumstances.

Quality, long-lasting food you will love

Complete customer satisfaction is our top priority. Before any THRIVE products leave our facility, they are individually tested by our on-site quality assurance department and FSIS Inspector. The Thrive Life quality assurance team carefully reviews each product to verify that it meets our standards of premium quality. We take great precaution in every step of the process to ensure you’re eating only the best. Read More...

Long-Lasting Product
Most THRIVE products have an optimal sealed shelf life of 10-20 years (some are as high as 30+ years) and an opened shelf life of 6-18 months. THRIVE foods undergo a natural preservation process in order to maintain their nutritional value and delicious taste over an extended period of time. Both dehydration and freeze drying remove the moisture from the food. Freeze drying gives the food an even longer shelf life than dehydration because it also preserves the cell structure and nutrients.. Once the products have been properly freeze dried or dehydrated, they are sealed in cans to prevent oxygen and light from degrading the product. These innovative processes lock in the taste and freshness of each THRIVE food, allowing you to enjoy the same great taste for years to come.
