Abstract:

Preservation of the industrial base for the production of MREs Meal Ready to Eat is at risk in light of reductions in the budget of the Department of Defense. This paper will discuss the history of rations, current production status, future requirements, and ways to ensure a viable industrial base. The intent of this paper is to describe in detail the past, present, and future field rations. Compare production concepts and address ways by which a healthy industrial base, capable of meeting DOD capacity requirements for the most common ration MRES can be obtained.
