LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2014 /NEWS.GNOM.ES/ —Global Food Industries (GFI) introduces CAMP READY MEALS, a new line of shelf-stable, complete meals—made in the U.S.A.—that will be sampled at the Army Navy Military Expo (booth # 200 & 323). These healthful dining options were created to feed campers, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts.
The first 10 flavors are Southern-style BBQ Chicken, Hearty Beef Stew, Hearty Chicken Stew, Noodles and Chicken, Chili Mac, Beef Stroganoff with Noodles, Chicken a la King with Rice, Jambalaya, Sweet and Sour Rice with Chicken, and Cheesy Hamburger Mac. CAMP READY MEALS will be available in stores Spring 2014 and will have a suggested retail price of $5.99 for each two-serving pouch. GFI joined forces with ATLANCO® and Major Surplus & Survival, two of the most respected distributors in the outdoor/Army/Navy retail industry, to distribute CAMP READY MEALS nationwide.
CAMP READY MEALS are a healthier version of camping meals currently available in the retail market since, as they are made with vegetable protein exclusively, they are lower in sodium and fat and contain no preservatives. With multi-year shelf life, the compact and lightweight two-serving pouches are easy to store and transport in a backpack. They are prepared in five minutes using only hot water. www.CampReadyMeal.com
GFI Marketing Director Ed Harary came up with the idea during his recent travels. “I was on an airplane speaking with a guy next to me about the millions of healthy just-add-water entrees we provide to foodservice,” Harary recalls. “He said he owned several Army Navy surplus stores and could use an affordable, healthy and delicious food product for his customers. The common brands that he stocks were not adapting quickly enough to the healthier eating trend.”
