How Thrive Life Advertises

We have a massive advertising budget…

that goes right to our best customers.

Yes, you read that right! We don’t pay lots of money to gigantic super-rich media corporations so they can air a message that nobody wants to hear, or even believe. We know everyone is skeptical of advertising.

So we use a different model. We use word of mouth through our customers! We know that if you refer a friend to Thrive Life they are more inclined to buy, and you should get part of every order they make.

How does it work?

Be good. But more importantly, DO good.

About the Thrive Life Company

The history of Thrive Life

Jason & Lindsay Budge met Steve & Amy Palmer while going to college. They didn’t immediately realize the great and enduring partnership they would form, but they both felt the need to prepare for the future. The two families had always believed that the keys to happiness are self reliance and the balance of life’s priorities, including education, healthy diet, physical fitness, financial independence, family, and faith in God. However, there was something important missing in their goal of self reliance: a good supply of provisions to prepare for hardships or emergencies. The problem? They didn’t know how to start or what to store for a long term food supply.

In the summer of 2004, Jason and Steve felt a great responsibility to solve this problem. They were facing difficult decisions and challenges—including Lindsay staying in the hospital for 3 months before their birth to save their twin daughters − and they felt they could no longer wait to help everyone become self-reliant.  They turned down wonderful opportunities, took the leap of faith, and started Thrive Life.

Thrive Life has developed food rotation products which make food storage and organization manageable. The company also developed a line of food with over 90 super quality, delicious foods. While the decades of shelf life for the food makes it the best solution for long-term food storage, the convenience and great flavor of this easy-to-use food make the perfect ingredients for everyday meal preparation and best nutrition. Thrive Life is committed to having the best foods on the market and making them a part everyday life!

Through innovation, hard work, balance, the dedication of its founders, officers, workers and consultants, and an unceasing commitment to help people all over the world be prepared, Thrive Life has become the most trusted name in the food industry.

Here’s a short video to help you get to know Steve, Jason and Thrive Life better.

Stop Wasting Food!

Want to stop wasting money?

When was the last time you bought some lovely fruits and veggies, put them in the fridge, then forgot about them? How rotten or fuzzy were they when you remembered?

Just another way to get paid to eat Thrive Life, my saving money on wasted food thrown out.  Our fruits and veggies will last usually up to a year once you open the can! Keeping them in the fridge or freezer will give them an even longer life too, especially if your region is warm and humid. Ours never last that long, they get eaten! Unopened cans generally last up to 25 years too, so it’s great for long term food storage for emergency preparedness.
