How do I get my FMC discount Card?
There are a number of ways to get your copy of Backcountry and FMC Discount card. In general, you can get an initial card after signing up to contribute to FMC, and then an annual card with the June issue of Backcountry.
Holders must have their card with them and show it on request when claiming a discount. Photo ID may be required.
For discount providers:
Due to the roll out of FMC’s new D2U service, there may be a small gap in card validity for some holders. FMC requests that companies honor cards which expire 31 May 2021 through to the end of June 2021.
Companies interested in joining can learn more about the member benefits scheme.

|Local Dehy: Vegetarian and Vegan dehydrated meals, produced in small batches at Lake Hawea, Otago.
We found that a single serve of meals on the market was not enough to satisfy our hunger after a day of adventuring, but a double serve was too much. That’s why our meals are packaged in a hearty 1.5 single serve.
We live in a wee house in Lake Hawea, just outside of Wanaka, with our ginger cat Kehu, and mountains all around us. We make small batches of dehy in our custom built food trailer that sits in our driveway. We add lots of fresh veggies, toast and grind whole spices, and cook each batch with care. It’s then dehydrated and packaged by hand, ready for you to take on your next adventure!
