Survival Provisions

Explorers and safety planners found malted milk to be ideal for the cold-weather expeditions and emergency situations because it was lightweight, non-perishable and packed with calories.

Explorers including Robert Peary, Roald Amundsen and Richard Byrd all made Horlick's Malted Milk a cruicial component of their provisions. William Horlick donated $30,000 to Byrd's 1933-1934 expedition.
