If you're looking for a cost-effective, convenient, and nutritious food option for your emergency stockpile. Or, if you like camping but hate living off baked beans cooked on a portable stove, then MREs are a good option.
As MREs have become more popular, the makers have come to appreciate that there aren't that many options for people with special diet requirements. You can get Halal MRE products, as well as Kosher ones, and ones that are suitable for vegetarians. These are ideal for people who are looking to enjoy the survivalist or outdoors lifestyle still, but who can't eat standard packs. They are based on the same meal ideas but carefully selected to ensure that only 'approved' ingredients are used.
Halal MREs are a good choice for private rescue operations because they are things that the majority of the population can and will eat.
This field tested, extended shelf life products are designed with practicality in mind and are nutritious enough to keep you ticking over if you're stuck out in the woods. It's worth keeping some in your home over the winter as well, so if you find that you can't go out because of the snow, you'll be able to eat some nice tasty food while you wait for things to get back to normal. No worrying about going to the store and finding it stripped bare, no worrying about the stuff in the cupboard going off and needing to be replaced, just buy, make a note of the year it expires, and forget about it.
Halal certified meals are becoming more common in the military in some countries to cater to those with special food requirements, and the MRE makers have not sacrificed taste!
