The Shelf-Stable Ready to Eat Pocket Sandwich line was originally developed for the United States Military as combat feeding rations for the “Troops On-The-Go”. The Military required a product which had a three-year shelf-life and tasted great on day one or day 1,095. The product was originally tested with the United States Marines during an operation in Fallujah. The product scored exceptionally well and received one of the highest acceptance scores of any new product introduction. The product is currently being incorporated into the “First Strike Ration”, which is being provided to our Military’s Special Operations Forces when they carry out missions in a “Hot Zone”. The entire product line of sandwiches, pizza, and wraps are proudly produced at the Bridgford Statesville, NC production facility. Our ingredients are all sourced from the USA.
