If you are choosing storage containers for your survival food, the last thing you want is to find your emergency food has gone bad because of improper storage containers! The subject of which containers are best for long-term food storage is really controversial. The only thing that people seem to agree on is that food storage containers really matter!
1. The Original Packaging
