Meals Ready to Eat (MRE)
Developed to be used by the United States military, the Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE) was a strong successor to the previously used meal rations such as the MCI and LRP rations since 1981. These ration packs provided not only military personnel with a full meal or snack when in training/combat but offer civilians sustenance during natural disasters.
For the past 35 years, MRE has continued their research and developing different meals and technologies to further the product. Currently, these ration packs have 24 different entrées and more than 150 additional items with a 5-year shelf life.
72hours.ca offers a wide variety of MRE products such as a complete 12 meal case with MRE’s most popular entrées that are pre-cooked. There is also a vegetarian option to cater to your specific dietary needs. Each ration pack meal set comes with the following items:
- Main entree
- Drink mix
- Wet nap
- Non-dairy creamer
- Salt and pepper
- Hot sauce
- Flameless Ration Heater
Each meal set also includes a cutting-edge flameless ration heater (FRH) so you can enjoy a hot meal wherever you go.
* individually packaged foods do not include the FRH*
