Abstract:

Tray Pack foods are one of the primary rations for the new Army Combat Field Feeding System. Troop acceptance and product quality are essential for successful implementation of the total system. Field testing allowed Natick to accumulate a large database on troop food likes and, just as importantly, dislikes, while participating in field exercises. Our major objective is to provide troops with the foods they want for one or two hot meals each day. From the field acceptance test data, Natick has been able to successfully reformulate many items, modify others, and engineer several new items. This report brings together all of the acceptance data from the five phases of field acceptance testing. Keywords Food service Feeding Menu Meals Ratings.
