World’s Meal Ready-to-Eat (MRE) combat rations

Italy Meal Ready-to-Eat (MRE)

One of biggest challenges for world’s armies is the meal for soldiers on the battlefields and those operating in most dangerous operations. Combat rations or the meals for soldiers in such missions needs to be light weight because they are already preoccupied with heavy equipment.

On the other side, the meal needs to be rich with energy and vitamins and to fit every need of the person which could expect heavy physical effort.

These meal packages are called MRE (Meal Ready-to-Eat). Every country has the different one. Photographers Fabrizia Parisi and Giulio Iacchetti took pictures of the different MRE through the world.
