Buying bulk storable foods is a great way to hedge against rising food prices. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in March 2014 food prices in the US for many commodities had risen substantially when compared to March 2013. For example, prices of flour increased by 10.4%, ground beef by 11%, milk by 6.9%, processed cheese by 6.0%, potatoes by 11.0% and eggs by 7.1%. (source: http://www.bls.gov/
In addition, the recent drought in California has many industry experts worried about higher food prices in the US during the upcoming year. Dylan Hunt, CEO at Offgrid Outpost, comments, “The new line of bulk food commodities by Legacy Premium is a great way for our customers to stock their kitchens with high-quality food ingredients, and lock-in today’s prices.” The Legacy Essential bulk foods have a shelf life of up to 25 years. Once the packing seal is opened, they will last up to 1 year.
Hunt adds, “Not everyone wants to store only prepared meals in their long-term food storage. Many people enjoy doing their own cooking. For others, such as people who suffer from food allergies, it is important to prepare their own meals. By offering bulk food commodities to our customers, we are giving them a choice to store basic ingredients, drinks, fruits and veggies, in addition to a wide variety of prepared entrées and breakfasts.”
