Online gold coin dealer expands product offerings to help customers prepare for a potential emergency or economic collapse

Dallas, Texas – November 1, 2011 – All agree that adequate preparation for an emergency situation is the best defense one can have. Besides natural disasters though, individuals and families must also consider the prospect of a complete breakdown in the economy. To help customers adequately prepare and weather these types of situations, online gold coin dealer Provident Metals, LLC ( now includes a variety of food storage and survival kits for both short and long-term preparation in its inventory.

Over the last few years, ferocious weather events along with terrible economic conditions have led to more urgency in people to consider survival preparations. Experts contend this need will continue unabated for the foreseeable future as the cost for necessary staples like food are expected to increase exponentially. Many individuals and families though do not know where to begin preparing for this potential calamity and therefore lack a supply of food that is highly nutritious and does not require refrigeration.

“If our worst fears about the economy come true and there’s a complete breakdown, perishable food will quickly become the most valuable thing a person can own, more valuable than gold or silver coins I’m willing to bet,” comments J.W. Haugen, General Manager of Provident Metals, LLC. “Many bullion dealers overlook this vital component of living through a natural disaster or economic calamity.”

Emergency food supplies come in a variety of quantities from single meals for camping and 72-hour emergency kits to a 1-year supply for an entire family. All individual entrees come freeze-dried, dehydrated and sealed in heavy duty Mylar pouches. Options include granola and cereals for breakfast and meat lasagna, stroganoff, chili macaroni, soups and many other items for meals later in the day. Survival kits contain many necessary items besides food and are designed to grab and go in the event an evacuation is required.

“Besides the food itself, emergency provisions need to be portable enough to just throw in a car and go,” Haugen explains. “Food storage kits available through our online store can provide a cost effective solution that can be taken and used anywhere.”

Food storage and survival kits available at Provident Metals are supplied by Wise Food Storage, a maker of a wide variety of emergency preparedness and survival products.
