What is an MRE?

MREs or Meals-Ready-to-Eat are individually packed food rations used in time of diaster or emergency.These survival foods were originally developed for use by the military for times when formal meal preparation was not possible. The MRE meals are fully cooked, nutritious, lightweight, and simple to store. This has made them popular for emergency food as well as on-the-go meals for hikers, campers, hunters, and other outdoor enthusiasts.

What do MRE's Taste Like?

Opinions very all over the board on this question. Just like store canned goods, you either like them or not. They taste very similar to canned foods. We have some customers that love eating MREís so much that they have them for lunch several times a week.

Are MRE's Dehydrated or Freeze-Dried?

No. MRE's are totally different. Unlike dehydrated or freeze dried foods which both require water to reconstitute them, MRE's are precooked "in the pouch" and retain their full moisture like canned food items, just with a much longer shelf-life.

What Specs were MRE's Designed to Meet?

MRE pouches have been extensively tested by the U.S. Military and designed to a higher standard that normal store bought foods. Here are just some of the rigorous requirement they were made to meet:

  1. 100% survival rate from a military cargo parachute drop
  2. A survival rated of at least 75% in the event of a
    air cargo parachute failure
  3. Survive under the harshest of weather conditions
  4. Withstand extreme soldier field abuse
  5. Handle outdoor storage anywhere in the world
  6. Pass 7,000 individual pouch drops from 20 inches
  7. Be able to withstand a static load of 200 pounds for three minutes.

Can MREís be used for Camping?

Absolutely! The ready-to-eat convenience of MRE's make them ideal for use while backpacking, camping, hunting, boating and fishing.

Are MREís Good for Food Reserves and Emergency Preparedness?

MREís are an excellent choice for short term (1-3 months) food reserves. When is comes to Emergency Food Reserves, several consideration must be taken into account. The basics considerations are 1) What emergency are you preparing for (power blackout, earthquake, hurricane, terrorist attack, etc.), and 2) How long do you want to prepare for?
