Freeze-Dried Food


Here at Backpacker’s Pantry, we’re passionate about bringing the most mouth-watering flavors and delicious recipes to your outdoor adventures, emergency food supplies, and beyond. Food is something we think about constantly, whether we’re cooking at home or exploring far-flung corners of the globe. Our chef jots down notes, often on paper napkins (when you’ve just had the best meal of your life, you improvise.) Then, it’s time to create these meals in freeze-dried form. This page is where you can find all of those freeze-dried meals for backpacking, camping, hunting, emergency preparedness, and more. 

When it comes to freeze-dried meals, you have plenty of options available. But, we’re willing to bet that the competition’s creations aren’t quite as unique as our globally inspired recipes. We love searching for new ingredients and recipes that will keep your taste buds on their toes. After discovering freeze-dried capers, we knew we had to come up with a Risotto with Chicken meal worthy of the best Italian restaurants. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think.

Speaking of feedback, our customers play a big role in recipe development. Comments from customers like you have led to several tasty additions to our pantry throughout the years. Our Three Amigos Veggie Stew is a great example of this. We knew you wanted more vegan and vegetarian-friendly freeze-dried meals, and we aim to please. We want as many people as possible to enjoy our delicious freeze-dried meals, which is why you’ll also find plenty of meals that are dairy-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and gluten-free. The Backpacker’s Pantry team also stays up-to-date on the latest food trends and nutritional science discoveries. That’s why we’ve updated some of our bestsellers to include more protein and less sodium. 

So, what are you waiting for? Start browsing and find the perfect meals to enjoy on the trail, in your tent and anywhere else your adventures lead!
