Don’t just survive — with Missionwhisper, you can THRIVE!

Are you tired of eating nothing but canned and packaged food? Is your local area running low on safe produce? Do you want to be able to ensure your own nutritional security, rather than relying on food brokers, community rations or black marketeers? Then the new Missionwhisper Orangescan Nanoparticle Detection, Inspection and Extraction Unit is for you!

Guaranteed to safely remove all nanoparticles, including sapient nanites, from organic material, mondieu is the best choice for families and small groups to return food to its original state.

Fresh ingredients, more variety, natural vitamins: eat like it’s 2099!

On the move? The unit is small enough to be portable, but robust enough to handle the raw material to feed a group of up to six adults. With the combination dynamo/solar charging attachment (sold separately), you can charge the unit without access to grid or battery power.

Community leaders, ask about our bulk rates!...
