The Good

  • Product variety
  • Website
  • Charity

Thrive Life offers a wide variety of freeze dried and dehydrated foods, as well as a number of staples packaged for long term storage. They focus on providing healthy foods preserved in such as way as to maintain nutrition and taste for a shelf life of up to 25 years. The foods are also designed to be used as a convenience in everyday cooking to save time and reduce waste.

This company also stocks a good variety of emergency supplies like kits, water storage, and shelter, as well as unique shelving solutions to organize your food storage.

The website makes it easy for customers who may be new to emergency preparation to figure out what they need for their family. There are calculators that will use your family information to create a plan for building a 3 month supply of food and emergency items that will fit your needs. If desired, you can add the entire plan to your shopping cart with one click, or the calculator will break it up into monthly purchases to help spread the expense out over time. This monthly system is called the "q," and you can also set it up manually by choosing the foods you wish to stock up on and a monthly budget. The system will break your choices down into automatic monthly deliveries that fit the budget you specify.

Thrive Life has their own charity, Thriving Nations. 5% of all profits are donated to provide water, nutrition, and education in selected third world nations.

The Bad

  • Direct sales aspect

Thrive Life markets to The home party/direct sales aspect of this company does have the pot to the customer who is not interested in hearing about hosting a party or becoming a consultant. The company naturally wishes to draw in more sales consultants, repeat customers, and party hosts, and the marketing reflects that.

The Bottom Line

We recommend this company without hesitation.They have a wonderful track record of quality and service over the 10 years that they have been in business. The website is easy to use, contains a lot of solid educational materials, and makes planning your emergency supply pretty painless. You can also enjoy knowing that 5% of any purchase you make will go directly to charity, which might take just a little of the sting out of the cash layout needed to create an emergency stash.

    I bought Chef's Selection, my bad choice and buyer beware here. What you get for over $200 per month, for 3 months are a few canisters in each box that are of some value; . The bulk of what you will receive are cheap filler products such as; rice; dry pastas; flour; brown sugar; sugary drink mixes; salty bouillon; dry beans; etc. 25 year shelf life as advertised and the name 'Chef's Selection' pulled me in to buy. Sounded good and I did not look close enough to realize what I was going to be receiving. Again my bad. If I were to buy from THRIVE I would not trust THRIVE company to make selections again. Not the experience I was anticipating and so disappointed. I bought with emergency storage in mind which this is not. Also note that the word dehydrated is misleading. When I think dehydrated I do not think of flour or the many other items sent. DO NOT BUY THIS
