VISION AND VALUES


OUR VISION

HOTG-MRE vision is that a MRE will provide a long life, safe, and edible storage solution for all MRE options, giving excellent taste whilst providing superior nutrition.
HOTG-MRE offers all of these qualities in its MRE products for both Military use and any other Global commercial food consumption requirements.


Service, Delivery and Production Capabilities

Emergency relief and Urgent Military requirements can change at a days’ notice. Bearing that in mind HOTG-MRE manufacturing facilities are able to manufacture 1,000,000 24HR C3400 MRE, or up to 1,500,000 of our other lower calorie options per month. These volumes can be increased on demand as our new current manufacturing facilities have been designed and planned with expansion in mind.

New orders can take up to 4 (four) months before shipping from the first order. As we are unable to carry stocks for long periods of time. Everything is manufactured and sourced fresh to order and the retort pouches are printed, manufactured and imported from overseas. There is a 4 (four) to 5 (five) week lead time before we commence with production. Our retort meals, once cooked and packed, there is an incubation period (for random testing) as part of our quality control and approval process, with requirements for the local food approvals. This is also needed to get approval for our accreditation. Please consider when planning and forecasting your orders.

The HOTG-MRE team and factory are equipped to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
