These MREs are the newest style made by SOPAKO packed 16 meals per case. Unlike the old FEMA meals, these are in military packaging to retain their freshness longer. Each meal offers an average of 900-1000 calories with a variety of Menu items with reduced sodium and contents giving what you need in an emergency. The difference is not only the military grade packaging but the side dish that did not come with the older FEMA SOPAKCO meals. MRE meals are great for being prepared, camping or having some extra meals for when you need them most.
