The WORLD'S FIRST HALAL AND NON GMO SUPPLIER in emergency preparedness providing high-quality food storage, MREs, and emergency supplies for more than 5 years

We thought best that Wikipedia tells you about MREs:

The Meal, Ready-to-Eat – commonly known as the MRE – is a self-contained, individual field ration in lightweight packaging bought by the Department of Defense for its service members for use in combat or other field conditions where organized food facilities are not available. While MREs should be kept cool, they do not need to be refrigerated. MREs replaced the canned MCI, or Meal, Combat, Individual rations, in 1981,[1] and is the intended successor to the lighter LRP ration developed by the United States Army for Special Forces and Ranger patrol units in Vietnam. MREs have also been distributed to civilians during natural disasters.


The first soldier ration established by a Congressional Resolution, during the Revolutionary War, consisted of enough food to feed a man for one day, mostly beef, peas, and rice.[citation needed] During the Civil War, the military moved toward canned goods. Later, self-contained kits were issued as a whole ration and contained canned meat, bread, coffee, sugar and salt. During the First World War, canned meats were replaced with lightweight preserved meats (salted or dried) to save weight and allow more rations to be carried by soldiers carrying their supplies on foot. At the beginning of World War II, a number of new field rations were introduced, including the Mountain ration and the Jungle ration. However, cost-cutting measures by Quartermaster Command officials during the latter part of World War II and the Korean War again saw the predominance of heavy canned C rations issued to troops, regardless of operating environment or mission.[3] During WWII, over 100 million cans of Spam were sent to the Pacific.[4]The use of canned wet rations continued through the Vietnam War, with the improved MCI field ration.


The MRE has been in continuous development since its introduction. In 1990, a Flameless Ration Heater (FRH), a water-activated exothermic reaction product that emits heat, allowed a service member in the field to enjoy a hot meal.

As daylight breaks over Brunei Bay, it unveils sporadic new developments in ports, roads, bridges, warehouses and industrial plants, scattered all over Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital city. There are more ships docking into the port these days. The industrial warehouses occupancy has gone up last year. There is a new reality in the operating costs in Brunei as well. As volumes increase, shipping and logistics costs are coming down. As more and more graduates look for work, salaries are affordable by start-ups. As supply increases, rents are at reasonable levels from the old highs. There is a growing SMEs sector feeding their local products into the supply chain.


We feed several armies from our production facilities in Asia and Middle East.
