- Product limitations
- Customer service
- Educational resources
This company offers such an assortment and variety of fruits, however, we would like to see more of a vegetable and bean product line incorporated into their product list, as well as more meat options. It seems that back in 2013 they offered these options which were USDA approved, but have since removed them from their product list.
As far as customer inquiries via Facebook, company representatives are not ones to jump on customer service and answer questions, which can probably leave consumers in the dark regarding their products. We attempted to reach them several times and were consistently directed to voicemail, which is fairly unimpressive.
Educational resources are pretty scarce. They offer a blog, however the latest (and only) post was dated back to Nov. 2013. They also use social media as a source of emergency and food storage education, but like their blog, it is out of date with the last post being on January, 1st wishing followers a Happy New Year.
Do they offer local assistance?
No. This specific brand does not.
What do they offer in terms of learning materials?
They provide a severely outdated blog with one post dating back from 2013. They also hold a Facebook account, which is outdated and mostly focused on sales rather than education. They provide a newsfeed link however, that is also outdated and is all written in code.
