Interview With SurvivalCaveFood President J.R. Fisher

SurvivalCaveFood offers canned meats as well as a variety of freeze-dried meals. I’ve mentioned before how much I love canned meats for their convenience and the canned meats from SurvivalCaveFood are outstanding. When you purchase SurvivalCaveFood products, you are not just getting food to get you by. You are getting food that tastes good. This is food you could happily eat on a regular basis.

I recently had the opportunity to interview the president of SurvivalCaveFood, J.R. Fisher, about the motivation behind his products and what he recommends for those of us who are just getting started with food preps. Here is what he had to say:

EFS: What is your background in survival/preparedness?

J.R. Fisher: As most Americans, I became increasingly concerned about civil unrest around the world and ever changing weather conditions both here and on a global scale.

The more I began to prepare for my own family, the more it became self-evident that there was a mass need and desire for many Americans to protect and prepare for their families also. We felt as though most of the food products that were available did not have the flavor or aesthetic appeal that most people desire.

So out of that outgrowth, we started SurvivalCaveFood which now produces the finest long term food storage products which includes a complete line of freeze dried breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and drinks. We also produce a very high quality canned meat with an extremely long shelf life in several different varieties.

EFS: Why do you feel food storage is important?

J.R. Fisher: Most Americans have become entirely too dependent upon our food chain and being able to acquire foods through readily available sources, such as the grocery store. In fact, most Americans have moved away from home gardening and food storage that was a necessity and skill not so many years ago.

With the advent of a disaster, civil unrest, or terrorist attack, food supplies that we have become so dependent upon would surely not be available.

EFS: What, in your opinion, is the ideal food storage plan?

J.R. Fisher: Ideally, most Americans should have a 6 month – 12 month supply of food. With that having been said, to begin at 1 day, a week, a month or more, is an excellent start, considering most people have no alternative plan in the event of a food shortage.

EFS: What are the 3 most important things beginners should start with when they order food for storage?

J.R. Fisher: Prior to ever ordering food, they must obtain a water supply for each and every family member. Following that, the number one thing they should look for is the calorie content in the food they are getting.

Many manufacturers do not publish calories; they only advertise number of servings. In our food programs we suggest 2,000 calories a day per person. Second is to make sure that you have an adequate supply for each and every family member.

Number three, the flavor of the food should be something you would eat in a non-disaster situation. In other words, it should taste good. All of our meals are very high quality, gourmet flavor, that people enjoy eating, not has to eat.

EFS: What do you say to people who feel overwhelmed by the idea of prepping for emergency situations?

J.R. Fisher: I would tell them to start small and prepare for a weekend and then build to a week, a month, and before they know it they will be prepared.

EFS: What else would you like to share with readers?

J.R. Fisher: That every American should be aware of past disasters and take into account that our emergency services in many cases can become overwhelmed and they should never depend on government assistance. They should realize that their own safety and health is their own responsibility.

EFS would like to thank J.R. Fisher of SurvivalCaveFoods for taking the time for this interview.
