Abstract:

A proposed new system of feeding Army troops in combat is defined. This new system includes a new organization and management structure,the use of high-quality, preprepared, shelf-stable foods, and new equipment and packaging. This new food service system was compared with the current company level system and the consolidated system of feeding which has been recommended to the Army. This comparison emphasizes that the new system offers potential for improved performance on the 1990 mobile battlefield and for significant reductions of food service personnel.
