Daily Bread, LLC is an emergency preparedness company headquartered in Kaysville, Utah. They have been in business for around 9 years.
- Variety of products
- Free samples
This is a respectable company with a good, solid track record. They have a wide variety of food storage and emergency supplies, and a selection of plans to help make sure you are buying what we need for your family. Daily Bread has good pricing on its products. We love that you can call in and request a free sample, as well as purchase some low-cost sample packs, before investing a lot of money in foods you may not even like.
- Educational resources
- Purchasing options
The Daily Bread website is not especially informative; if you are looking for a lot of educational articles or a good community connection, we advise you to keep looking elsewhere.
We also consider it a drawback that you cannot shop a la carte from their food line, unless you want to buy it by the case. Most preparedness stores make their wares available in smaller quantities, in addition to purchasing an expensive plan or an entire case of food.
Finally, the website has some odd quirks. There is a video described as a "documentary of an average family living solely on daily bread food storage products for one week - unscripted and unbiased." Upon watching the video, we found a short "before" interview with the family planning to try this - but the video ends before the experiment begins. We get the sense that these things probably stem more from a degree of neglect of the website, rather than an intention to deceive, but we were still a little turned off by them.
The Bottom Line
Overall, we think this is a decent, honest company that can be trusted. We like their track record, and the variety. However, the inconvenience of having to purchase a plan or a case, the middling prices, and the less than amazing website leave us on the fence on this one. Our recommendation really will depend on what you are looking for.
- Want a company with great customer service that will sell you a pre-made or custom food storage plan, all at once or a little at a time? Daily Bread will meet that need admirably.
- Are you just looking to buy a case of some particular freeze dried item? Check your prices - you could well get a good deal here, and they won't give you any headaches.
- Do you want to be able to buy a can of this and a can of that? Maybe just one this month, and another one a couple of months down the road? In that case, keep looking.
- Or, finally, are you looking for a company that will deeply educate you on emergency preparedness, from the finer points of food storage to making a detailed plan for specific emergencies? Again, search on.
