Canadian Mil Ration Podcast Episode

Post by MILNEWS_ca » Mon Jun 17, 2019 7:42 am

This is the latest episode (~26 minutes) of a Canadian defence reporter's podcast, focusing on rations ...
Figuring out how to mass produce combat-ready meals for the Canadian military isn't an easy task. Figuring out how to make those meals not taste like sludge is even harder. But that's Edith Jutras' job. She's the manager of the National Combat Rations Program and her team is responsible for producing up to two million meals per year. She joins the Ottawa Citizen's David Pugliese on the Defence Watch podcast to discuss how the military is fed in the field, how meals have such long shelf lives and why eggs are no longer on the menu.
Just spotted it, so I haven't listened yet, but thought you'd might enjoy it.

Thanks, that was very interesting. I do have to agree that the canadians have very good meals as I have been lucky enough to try a few. Thanks for sharing this
