All about MRE's - a guide for 2020

By Lee Moulton August 02, 2020

MRE Meal Ready to Eat - Because your Army marches on its stomach


Why MRE - Meal Ready to Eat?

You heard the Tornado or Hurricane warning and raced off to your storm shelter or safe place. Now what? Wait until someone comes to give you food? It might take days or weeks.


Can you wait that long for shops to fill up again, do you want to go outside, risking infection, injury or disorder and chaos?

With your Food, Medical supplies and Water supplies well organised you can relax, knowing that your family is safe from the chaos outside.

Our nations troops need to be prepared at a moments notice and now your family can too. Having a secure food supply, ready and waiting, helps to reduce your stress about natural disasters and other emergencies. 


MREs (Meals Ready-to-Eat) are extremely convenient! An MRE can be eaten cold right out of the pouch, but they always taste better hot, so the MRE M018-H meals come pre-packaged with a flameless heater for each entree. These convenient heaters only need a tablespoon of water, which is included in these meals, and produce enough flame free heat to warm your MRE in a matter of minutes without needing any additional gear.

 Hurricane disaster Storm damage

MREs are perfect for SHTF (shit hits the fan) situations.

The MRE Self contained entrees and meals are perfect for emergency preparation or equally a camping or hunting trip. MRE cases come in a wide array of sizes and items inside, including single serving entrees or full meals.

Cases are a great way to store MREs in larger quantities. They stack well and are easy to grab and go when needed. Each MRE case contains the amount of calories you need, in a delicious variety of meals and entrees. 


A little side note and Warning. Be Aware - The military considers ex-Military MRE's to be illegal, the property of the US Government. So be careful with buying second hand MRE's online. All food degrades over time and this depends very much on the conditions that the food is stored in.With ex-military MRE the conditions of storage may not have been adequate and they may have a severely reduce shelf life. Imagine that your meals have been flown across the world and sat in a desert in the sun or in a tent for the last month in 100 degree heat.
