RoudyBush and Freezing

I am going to get RoudyBush for my lovebird and I will be buying in bulk. I am getting 11lb and this will last her for about a year. My question is can I freeze it that long or should I buy it in smaller quantities?

I think it lasts a long time in the freezer as long as it is properly sealed. I freeze mine. I looked on their website one time-it did address freezing, but I can't remember how long only that it was a long time. Might check there.

I've kept mine in the freezer for 4-6 months with no apparent ill effects
