Expedition meals are complete freeze-dried meals intended for outdoor use, originally by the military.
The meals are easy to prepare by simply tearing the top off the pouch, adding boiling water, closing the pouch and eating directly out of it.
In order to make the product truly convenient, the pack is wide and shallow to ease eating directly out of it and the special labels provide extra insulation.
They taste great and could not be easier to prepare. All you have to do is simply fill the packet up to the indicated level with hot or cold water.
The packaging is made from Flextrus Transofoil®, which is both fully recyclable as a plastic and is designed in such a way to act as an excellent insulator, helping keep your meal hotter for longer.
Blå Band’s meals cater for people with special dietary requirements where some of the meals are suitable for vegetarians, those with lactose intolerance and people who need their food to be gluten free.
