Heather’s Choice of Anchorage, Alaska is a very popular brand that makes paleo-oriented, calorie dense, dehydrated backpacking food. In 2011, Founder Heather Kelly was invited on her first trip rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. She was anxious about how to get all the healthy, delicious calories needed for such an adventure. With a small dehydrator, Heather dried over 50 pounds of food for her month-long trip! After some crowdfunding, the company came to life and has been growing ever since.
