PO Boxes, Delivery and Responsibility of Carrier
Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to know what PO Boxes will accept or hold potentially large packages. If a package is undeliverable and returned to us, we will contact you to request alternative shipping options and to invoice you for reshipment costs (within reason).
If a package is marked as delivered but you don’t have it, please contact the USPS, FedEx or the corresponding freight forwarder to inquire about the package. We are unable to take responsibility for packages lost or stolen after delivery. Once the product leaves our warehouse, it is the responsibility of the carrier.
Shipping and Carrier Information
While we make every attempt to allow for multiple shipping options, the contents of your order will sometimes dictate the shipping methods required.
Single packs of food will generally be sent via our partnership with DHL and the USPS. DHL will pick up the package and deliver to the nearest hub to your town and hand the package off to the United States Postal Service, who will make the final delivery. Though DHL/USPS is the typical handler for smaller orders, you can choose USPS Priority or FedEx for a faster shipment.
Any order including a bucket will automatically ship FedEx, unless the order is large enough that it has to ship on a pallet. If an order must be palletized, we will work to coordinate and connect you and our freight forwarder so your delivery can be made at a safe and convenient time for you.
Tracking is usually emailed within minutes of the label being printed. Please note while the tracking number may have been generated, the number will likely show an error until the carrier (DHL, USPS, FedEx, etc…) picks up and scans the package - even then, they sometimes take longer to activate. Please allow for one business day for tracking numbers to activate.
Please inspect the packaging of your item(s) when they arrive. If you notice any damage, you should make note of it when signing for delivery. If your item(s) do arrive damaged, please send photos to email@example.com and we will process an insurance claim on your behalf.

Shelf Life and Manufacturing Dates
Unless otherwise stated, Valley Food Storage is processed and packed to last for 25 years when stored properly. Opening, tampering or improperly storing food will significantly decrease the duration.
Best Storing Practices
It is suggested to keep your food stored in a cool, dry, and stable environment. For added protection, food pouches should be stored in a heavy-duty bucket or container.
Mylar Bags, Oxygen Absorbers & Buckets
All our products are enclosed in resealable mylar bags and include an FDA approved 100cc oxygen absorber. The oxygen absorber holds any remaining oxygen in the bag, and will continue to work when resealed after use.
In using Mylar bags, we offer a lightweight, durable and shelf-stable packaging. Compared to canned food which can leach into your food over time, Mylar does not have this effect over time.
Our buckets allow for protection against exposure to water, protects the bags from damage, and are easy to grab and go as needed.
All of our food include a food-safe Oxygen Absorber. These are meant to be discarded, and should not be opened or consumed.
The contents of an Oxygen Absorber include elemental iron filings. If accidentally digested the amount included could cause some distress for a small dog or cat under 15 pounds, but a single ingested packet is unlikely to have an adverse effect on a human.
Symptoms can occur from one to five days after exposure. Any owners of smaller animals that ingest an oxygen absorber should call their vet if they suspect their pet may be having a reaction. If you or a loved one accidentally ingest the contents of an oxygen absorber and are having any adverse reactions yourself please call your doctor.
