Breaking Down our Meal Stockists

Overwhelmed by the choices of meal options for your next adventure?

Wondering where your backpacking meals come from? Here’s a rundown on the meals we stock, many of them being local to Tasmania or just a hop, skip, and a jump across the Tasman from our dear friends in New Zealand.

Wondering what the difference is between freeze-dried and dehydrated meals? First things first, let’s chat freeze dried. Freeze dried meals have approximately 98% of their water removed, yet still maintain, taste, texture, and nutritional value of the food. Dehydrated meals have about 80% of their water content removed and lose some of their nutritional value due to the heat exposure during the drying process. Both are still great options and will keep you fuelled, but just something to keep in mind when planning longer trips to ensure you are giving your body proper nutrition. 

Here’s a look at meal options to keep you growing, playing, and performing wilder.
