    I have never seen actual issue MREs being sold but most camping / outdoor shops sell MRE type foods in civvy packaging.

    There was a thread on here years ago that recommended the below company in the UK. I have never used them however.

    I have had my fair share of issued ration packs and tbh, the ones you buy in Millets and the like are very similar if not identical. Obciously they are not a complete ration pack, just main meal / breakfasts.

    Wayfarer are the brand that most shops sell. http://www.millets.co.uk/product/090363/Beans-and-Bacon-in-Tomato-Sauce.html?attribute=627075

    We have recently got new ration pack, I havent seen one yet but the new menu's look great.

    eBay have great selection. Only problem is postage can be a bit steep with some sellers as a lot of them are in UK. You get lucky every now and then with cheap prices

    Use ParcelMotel, cost €3.50. They have an NI address to avail of decent prices from UK sellers.

    Westlers; the company that makes the Wayfarer food brand also supplies the MoD as far as I am aware. Having eaten my share of various 'food in a bag' offerings, the wayfarer stuff is my first choice (to date); boil in the bag and then use the water for tea/coffee/whatever whilst eating food that doesn't taste like sh*t.

    Decent range of menu options too. You'll pick up packs in pretty much any outdoor shop; granted per pack it's a bit more expensive than buying 24 hour ration packs, but you don't have to deal with postage charges either so it balances out.

    This is the new menu issued to us at the moment.
