Comment: One firm has contacted me in response to my call for a 50% discount on food: Mountain Brook Foods.
If you click through, you will see a lot of options: the Products page. Anything on this page is for sale at 50% off the price that you see on that page. This is a very good deal for food buyers.
Call them at 877-668-6826. Tell the operator that you are calling because of the Gary North site and want the 50% discount.
I did receive a response from another firm saying that 40% was all it could offer. Within hours, another company bought up that firm's inventory. Wednesday, I was asked by a representative of the second firm to wait a day until they could finalize the offer. I called back Thursday and got an answering machine. Later, I received another letter saying that the company will soon be ready to make the offer. But time is running out.
So, I have decided to post this link. If I do get contacted by the new owners of the second firm, I will post their offer. But a soybean in hand is worth two in the bush. You can buy any of Mountain Brook Food's packages right now.
I have already received e-mails from firms that say they sell food cheaper than Mountain Brook at 50% off. But what I am intersted in is not cheap food as such; I am interested in highly motivated sellers of food. I cannot check out every company's food prices, quality, packaging, etc., etc. What I can do is this: post a note that says a firm will sell at 50% of its Web prices. That shows me a highly motivated seller.
Fact: I made the offer. I got one bona fide response. Take it or leave it.

For those of you that have been around the preparedness industry for many years it should be noted that many of the old time stable companies have gone out of business or soon will. Canneries of storage food systems spent a great deal of money to ramp up for the perceived demand, only to see sales plummet and leave them with debt loads they could not service. Should the demand for these products return, the suppliers will not be there this time around. In the past month, many of these companies have been 'dumping' their food on the market at cost or below. At the Y2K Newswire site, members have had an opportunity to purchase top quality food products at 60-75% off the normal retail prices. When this food is gone it will not be replaced. One major food supplier is said to have sold their entire inventory for $.30 on the 'wholesale' dollar. Those who wait until the last minute can expect to pay much higher prices than in the past.

I ordered from these guys and they shipped the same day. We use the food everyday it is great. You can not beat the quality. I wish I had gotten the discount when I purchased. But then again I will because I will now order some for my family. It really is great.

I hate to burst your bubbles folks, but these prices are insance (read ripoff). Having sold $500,000 of food last year myself, I can tell you that it's possible to make a decent profit on a four person 1 year deluxe food unit for less then $1700. That's also almost 1700 lbs of dehydrated food. It's disgusting to see what suppliers are charging these days and 50% off "sales" are nothing more then marketing scams. There are several self made millionaires (I'm not one of them, I got out of the racket) out there in the preparedness industry. Save your money - go to Costco and buy your food for far less.

When it states that there's 59 servings/can with 1/3 cup being a serving, does that mean 1/3 cup of the powdered milk? OR is that 1/3 cup of drinkable milk...IOW after you've mixed it with the powder?
Also, do you have info. on their S&H?

1/3 cup powdered milk and the water make one serving. Shipping depends on where you live. When you call in your order they can give you the frieght charges then. Everything is shipped UPS.
