Who is Mountain House®
Oregon Freeze Dry was incorporated in 1963, when we began freeze drying fruit for a General Foods cereal. Later, we worked with the Department of Defense to develop and produce freeze dried military rations that tasted better, weighed less, and were easier to prepare than canned rations. By the early 1970's, we were marketing our own Mountain House® line of freeze dried foods for outdoor recreational use. In the 1980's, the Company grew rapidly as we began to manufacture private label packaged food products, and expanded our food ingredient line.
Today, Oregon Freeze Dry is the world's technological leader in freeze drying. Our freeze dried ingredients are key components in the products of some of America's largest food companies. We're still a major supplier to the military, and our Mountain House® brand continues to be the favorite of backpackers and campers.
Oregon Freeze Dry is located on a 35 acre site in Albany, Oregon, and employs over 300 people. The company has three manufacturing plants, which offer USDA and FDA registrations, according to product. Collectively, these plants represent 32,000 square feet of freeze drying capacity - over 60% of the freeze drying capacity in the US. Oregon Freeze Dry also has affiliate facilities in the United Kingdom and Denmark.
We're proud of our reputation as a progressive, quality-conscious company. Through innovative research and product development, Oregon Freeze Dry will continue to lead the world in freeze drying technology.
