What is MRE?
MRE stands for “meal ready to eat” and it is as simple as it sounds. These packaged meals come tightly sealed and are meant for easy preparation.
Often used by the military — there are many different meal types you can get from hot to room temperature meals. Inside an MRE you’ll often get a main course, side, bread, and a dessert. Spending on the meal you will also get a set of utensils or sauce you may need.
You can buy these meals in bulk or purchase them individually.
The leader in MREs is ReadyWise. They take an innovative approach in providing dependable, simple and affordable ready-made freeze dry and dehydrated food for emergency preparedness and outdoor use.
