Did you know…

  1. OFD Foods was incorporated in 1963, when the Company began drying fruit for breakfast cereals. Soon after, it worked with the Department of Defense to develop and produce military rations that tasted better and weighed less than canned rations.
  2. In 1968, the Company started marketing its own Mountain House® line of freeze-dried foods for outdoor recreational use. And in the 1980’s, the Company grew rapidly as it began to manufacture private label packaged food products and expanding its ingredient line.
  3. Today, OFD Foods is the world’s technological leader in freeze-drying. Their freeze-dried ingredients are key components in the products of some of America’s largest food companies.
  4. The Company’s Mountain House® brand continues to be the favorite of backpackers and campers, as freeze-dried foods weigh less than fresh (more than 98% of their water is removed) but retain virtually all their fresh-food taste and nutritional content when rehydrated.
  5. OFD Foods employs over 400 people and has produced over 400 different foods and beverages.

Cascade is proud to feature OFD Foods, the world leader in freeze-drying technology.
