Which emergency supply package is right for me?
At conserva.de you will find a large range of emergency supply packages containing a wide variety of products and calorie content and suitable for storing for different periods of time.
But which one should you choose?
To make sure you make the right choice, you need to be clear about what you want. The most important questions to ask yourself are:
- Do I want a package strictly for emergency use, i.e. based on calories?
- Although they are for emergency use, would I still like a variety of foods?
- Do I want products that I can eat immediately or ones that have to be prepared first?
- Do I want products with as long a 'best before' date as possible, or am I already confident about how long canned food can last?
- How many people and how many days do I want my emergency supplies to provide for?
As soon as you have clarified these points, you have a number of options for creating your very own emergency supply.
Do I want a package strictly for emergency use, i.e. based on calories?
If you have decided that purely calorie-based provisions are sufficient because they will only ever be used in an emergency, we recommend you go for the compact BP-WR wheat bars.
In comparison to other products on the market, the BP-WRs have the highest energy content and provide you with what is most important in an emergency situation - strength for the spirit and body. People will always disagree about flavour, but we know from listening to our customers that the BP-WR bars are a clear "flavour" champion, because even children eat them happily.
A box of 24 x 500g packs contains 55,000 calories for a 30-day emergency supply of food.
Although they are for emergency use, would I still like a variety of foods?
Even if you would rather not give up a certain amount of variety in your food intake even in an emergency we still have a wide range of packages for you to choose from. Our Basic, Premium and Premium with Breakfast packages offer the greatest variety and are available as 7-day packages, 15-day packages, 30-day packages and 90-day packages. Depending on the package, these bundles contain bread, tinned sausage, tinned cheese, freeze-dried ready-to-eat products and even tinned cakes. Please bear in mind that some of the products, such as tinned cheese and butter, only have a guaranteed shelf life of 1 year. In reality, however, their shelf life is of course considerably longer. To learn more about this, read our article "What about the shelf life of canned food?" Please bear in mind that all of these products must be prepared using water. In addition to these two emergency supply products, conserva.de offers unique ready-to-eat emergency supply packages, containing a wide selection of foods. Depending on their size, they contain between 24 and 306 tins, with extremely tasty dishes such as Lasagne, Tortellini in Ham and Cream Sauce, roast potatoes, and even curried sausage. As well as a long 10-year 'best before' date, each of these products may be eaten directly from the tin without having to be heated.
If you are looking for food that is not too different from your normal diet, we recommend you choose one of our Basic, Premium or Premium with Breakfast packages for 7 days, 15 days, 30 days or even 90 days.
Do I want products that I can eat immediately or ones that have to be prepared first?
If you want to act quickly when an emergency strikes and remain as independent as possible from external circumstances, we recommend you choose packages that do not require any preparation. For this purpose we recommend the wheat bar packages we mentioned earlier or our 7-day, 15-day, 30-day and 90-day ready-to-eat emergency packages. These delicious products are cooked prior to being tinned and can therefore be consumed directly from the tin. They provide a delicious meal even at room temperature. Of course, there is nothing to stop you heating the various dishes in a pan or in boiling water. Quite apart from the convenience aspect, all of these dishes have been carefully prepared to taste delicious. All ready-to-eat products are produced in southeastern Germany, in Bavaria, from traditional recipes using only the finest ingredients. Particular attention is paid to the source of all ingredients and to the actual preparation of each dish.
Do I want products with as long a 'best before' date as possible, or am I already confident about how long canned food can last?
If you want products with a very long shelf life, conserva.de has just what you are looking for. Wheat bars, all of our ready-to-eat products and the Fuel your Preparation tinned packages are the ideal solution.
Fuel your Preparation packages have an incredible and exceptional 25-year shelf life from the date of manufacture. You will always be on the safe side with a 30 Day Emergency Food Supply 'Fuel Your Preperation' or one of our 90 Day Emergency Food Supply 'Fuel Your Preperation'.
How many people and how many days do I want my emergency supplies to provide for?
As a general principle, each package is designed to meet the food needs of one person for a specific period.
Combinations of all of these are possible if two people need emergency rations for 15 days, they can of course share a 30-day package.
With answers to all of these questions, you are now in a position to select the most suitable package for your needs one that will ensure you have an adequate supply of food in the event of a crisis.
Every house needs an adequate supply of drinking water.
