Southland NZ is a gourmet food box where first-class vegetables, fruit and dairy products are produced. Back Country combines quality freeze-dried vegetables and meats with delicious sauces and flavours for a great taste and jam-packed goodness. Reduce the weight of your backpack by preparing meals inside the freeze-dry pack. All that's required is the addition of a little water and within 10 minutes the piping hot and nutritious meal can be served.

The freeze-dried process: The Back Country freeze drying process results in a completely dry product that won't shrink. Water is evaporated in a vacuum chamber, locking in goodness for long-lasting freshness. When the meal is rehydrated water is quickly absorbed, allowing ingredients to return to their natural juicy and tender state.

After packing, the foods are heat-sealed with all air removed. The food remains flavoursome and safe to eat for at least three years. All Back Country freeze-dried meals are formulated to meet high-energy dietary requirements. This includes the right balance of carbohydrates, protein and sugars for instant energy and nutritional replenishment. There are a lot of benefits with Back Country freeze-dried meals.
