If you have any leads to safe ready to eat long lasting (at least a year) snacks and foods that big businesses can purchase to use in case of emergency please let me know.

(There are other threads to discuss the need or not for this type of preparedness, please use those threads to discuss your thought there, this thread is for leads and tips which we can use to fill the demand.

Thankfully many businesses are becoming aware and are doing the work to find foods safe for the peanut allergic.

The faster you can help with this the better as we are being contacted and want to help the businesses keep their peanut allergic employees safe.

Stay Safe,

Does SunButter count? This PB alternative has been working out well for us and it seems to have a very long shelf life.
Am I on the right "train-of-thought" here?

I can tell you what our box contains:
General Mills Cheerios/Chex/Kix
Pepperidge Farms Regular Goldfish crackers
SunMaid Raisins
Hershey kisses
General Mills (Betty Crocker) fruit snacks
I would think that General Mills would be a great place to look for other items since their allergen labeling has been so forward thinking in the past- and since they track more than just for PA. This would make a difference for celiacs as well as other food allergic people.

If companies are looking for safe food to store, they can't really use anything with soy. The soy allergy is just as bad as the peanut one.
Are Hershey kisses safe? I personally don't consider them safe, because there are almonds ones, but I never checked into the manufacturing process. They could be safe, I am asking out of ignorance here.

Canned tuna, chicken, sardines, and such are good protein sources. I would suggest soy butter as an alternative to PB. I am thinking choice is key, since there could be several allergies in addition to PB. Boxed crackers, cereals, we use general mills and Nabisco(Cheerios, Ritz, Chex). We trust and use Nutrigrain Bars.
I do not know of a brand, but again, along the lines of compact and lasting forever, high in protein and not nutty, how about beef jerky and the like? Cereals are great, as arre crackers, but compactness may be a factor.
Aslo canned beans, bean soups, refried beans. More high protein, healthful choices. I eat these things, not my PA dd(picky), so I do not know brands. Perhaps others can toss out brands they use if PA. becca
