    The guys at Base Camp Food have come forward with a nice gesture of a 12% discount at checkout for trek-lite members, this will also apply to existing offers and deals on their website, and free UK delivery is also included.

    As well as freeze dried meals and other foods, they also stock a range of stoves and cookware.

    For larger orders of £200 or more, BCF have offered a 16% discount, useful for a longer trip perhaps or if anyone wants to kick off a group buy one day.

    So this doesn't get abused, members with a minimum of 10 posts can drop me a PM and I'll send you the discount code.

    I asked James at BCF for discount, retrospectively, and he followed up with a 12% discount on the pot I'd bought. Delivery was prompt and service excellent - I'd certainly use them again :).

    Thanks Cathy, glad we could help.

    That's a really nice offer. Pity we just laid in a big supply in November. LYO foods are just about the best you can get, in my opinion. The bigos is nearly as good as the one my Polish mother-in-law makes.
    James, if you read this, the supplies I brought from you were mainly use by June 2017; if you have some new stock which is use by late 2018, I could be tempted into another order ;)

    Hi William,

    Glad you are enjoying the LYO food and thanks for the feedback.

    We get 2-3 deliveries per month from our LYO friends (Polish family business based from Germany which explains the Bigos!) so our stock dates tend to just get later. We are hoping to be around for a few years so just let us know when you need to stock up!

    There has been some interest from other Trek Lite members on LYO Food so watch this space for both a Jan competition to win a LYO voucher and also some free packs to give out for people to try.

    Base Camp Food has become my main source of freeze dried food. Good choice and prompt service. Shame I’ve got a decent stock of food at the moment

    I've been getting most of my food from them recently. The Bla Band and Summit Meals along with a few Firepot. I have dug my dehydrator out though and will be attempting to create my own meals soon.

    Just received my latest delivery ready for this weekend. Thanks to @Shewie and @James BCF for the discount code.

    Unfortunately my order was missing one meal. (I'm partial to the Bla Band wilderness stew :)) However, I am confident a quick email to Base Camp will resolve issues. Never had issues in the past.

    Bring on the weekend and eating with a view :)

    Credit where credit is due. Excellent service again from Base Camp Foods. Missing meal turned up next day. Many thanks @James BCF

    Nice to see some UK based businesses keeping to their core values. Will definitely be using them as my main food source from now on. ... and will be recommending them to all my DofE / school groups.
