Making certain that Legacy Premium meals maintain their high standard of gourmet taste and nutritional value starts with the carefully controlled packing environment. Great care is taken to keep oxygen levels in the Mylar pouches as low as possible. The package first undergoes a special process to rid it of most of the lingering oxygen, then immediately gets an oxygen absorber and a nitrogen flushing to seal the bag. This unique process safeguards the quality and shelf life of the food and ensures that the residual oxygen levels in the pouches are far below 2%, the minimum standard in the industry.
Legacy Mylar pouches contain six 1-cup or four 1 ½ -cup servings, providing you with the perfect amount of food. In comparison, the #10 cans used by our competitors typically have anywhere from 10-20 servings per container, which must be consumed relatively soon after breaking the seal to avoid waste and spoilage. Our better proportioned pouches allow you to enjoy a wide variety of flavors instead of being forced to finish the entire contents of one can before moving on to the next one. With smarter storage designs and better meal packaging, it’s easy to see why Legacy Premium is miles ahead of the competition.
Traditional food storage comes courtesy of round, #10 tin cans that waste space and are difficult to stack. Emergency food also shows up in five to six gallon buckets that weigh 50-80 lbs. and require a strong back and set of hands to move them. These methods of storage are not nearly as effective as they could be which is why we offer food storage kits from Legacy Premium. Our pouches come in lightweight, stackable, square buckets that are easy to move and require less space to store. Each bucket is BPA-free and has a re-sealable, pull-top lid that provides easy access to entrees, while ensuring they remain safe and secure. Our big buckets contain 120 servings and weigh 40 lbs. or less, the perfect size to grab on the way out the door for a camping trip or to safety during a disaster. We have even heard of customers using empty buckets as flotation devices, which could come in handy during a flood.
