Meal Kit Supply MREs

Meal Kit Supply is a U.S. based company with a unique offering – their custom-designed MREs are assembled with an eye towards menu variety and meal diversity. Under the current menus, in a case of 12 MREs, they offer 5 different meat-based MREs, 3 different vegetarian-friendly MREs, and 4 breakfast MREs. Each meal averages around 1,200 calories. This kind of menu variety is usually missing in other civilian MRE brands that usually only offer 6 different menus and few, if any, breakfast items.

 

Meal Kit Supply MRE Price

There’s no getting around the issue of price with these Meal Kit Supply MREs. A case of 12 of these MREs currently sells for $129.95 but at least includes free shipping. When you compare this against a case of Sopakco Sure-Pak 12 MREs that you can find for $89, it seems like a steep price to pay. The question is…”are they worth it?”. With the Meal Kit Suply MREs, you get:

  1. More average calories per meal (more food!)
  2. More menu variety – 10 different menus vs. 6
  3. Not just entree variety but a wide variety of sides, desserts, spreads, etc.
  4. Breakfast items

For some shoppers, the amount of food and variety of menus – and especially the guarantee of breakfast items – will make the Meal Kit Supply MREs worth the extra premium. For ordering information, please see their MRE store.

Meal Kit Supply is Canada-Friendly

Meal Kit Supply is unique in the civilian MRE industry in that they have a dedicated online store for Canadian customers. The MREs sold there are CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) inspected and approved for distribution in Canada, which makes them the only civilian MREs that can be easily bought and sold in Canada without the buyer have to worry about shipping their US-purchased MREs through Canadian Customs and having to potentially pay import duties or even have the case of MREs seized. You can check out their Canadian storefront at Meal Kit Supply Canada.
