Carolina Food Storage

Your Independent Consultant

For years I have wanted to start a food storage system.  I really didn't know where to start and what to buy.  I stocked up on various canned foods that we never seemed to want to eat on a daily basis and they eventually expired and were thrown out.  
I set out on a search to find a system that would work for us and was so excited when I found Shelf Reliance!  The selection and quality of the food is better than anything I had tried in the past.  With a shelf life of 25 years on most items I knew that we wouldn't waste our hard earned money on food that is thrown away.  I love the convenience of having the foods that we use in stock at any given time!  
I have introduced several family members and friends to Thrive foods and I have to admit, at first there was a question mark above their heads when I mentioned freeze dried food.  After they sampled the foods they were eager to order products for their own pantry!
Thrive foods are healthy & delicious not to mention being affordable, long lasting, practical and versatile!!
