My 17 year old son took some of your ready meals to V Festival this year, and said they were “really good” he especially liked the all day breakfast! I thought the boxes would come back unopened as he can be a typically teenage fussy eater (pizza boy).
I got him the meals as I thought it was better than sending him with a stove and matches!!! (Typical “Kevin” most of the time) With the added risk of the equipment failing to return (his mate failed to bring back his sleeping bag and tent !).
Anyway its not much of an endorsement but trust me I was really pleased to be able to send him away for the weekend with the knowledge he would be able to get a hot meal and a breakfast without the risk of portable BBQs undercooked sausages etc.
He’s going away to another festival next weekend so I’ve ordered some more meals for him.
Not only that but my husband is a canoeist and thought what a brilliant idea where space and weight is really tight in the canoe for weekend paddles so I’ve bought a bigger selection.
Can I suggest you put a Facebook Page up so that I can become a “friend” and that way you will get more advertising - hopefully more sales and bring the prices down a tad!!
You might also try the various festival organiser to advertise on their sites as I am sure they would be happier not have the risk of portable BBQs and camping stoves – alternatively to set up a stall on the festival sites – selling meals!

Both Hot Pack and Action Pack are used in numerous leisure pursuits. Action Pack is presented in a plastic bag and is very compact, making it ideal for packing into a back pack or for storing in small spaces. Hot Pack is slightly bigger, presented in a cardboard carton and including a dish. Once the meal has been heated, the flameless ration heater, remains warm for several minutes, providing great localised heat in a jacket pocket! The areas in which Hot Pack and Action Pack can be used are limitless, but include, walkers, anglers, campers, outdoor pop and music concerts, night shift workers, office workers, scouts/guides, day trippers, skiing, mountaineering, Duke of Edinburgh participants, yachtsmen to name a few....
We did very well in the Gordon Bennett coming 9th out of 17 teams beating former champions. We travelled 500 miles and were in the air for 22.5 hours. We enjoyed our Hot Packs through the night and on landing ,before spending the night in a field and waking to a real breakfast, landing south west of Toulouse before the Pyrenees mountains.
Unfortunately the some of the pictures of the flight were lost but we did take some of a recent cross channel flight from Lidden race track near Dover to France.
We found the Hot packs to be excellent. So easy to use, and real food that tasted great. We really enjoyed the chicken on our flight to France!!
Chris and I recommend Hot Pack !.
My next adventure is to fly in the Dolomite mountains early January. There usually 30 to 40 hot air teams there from all over Europe. Could take some leaflets or samples with me. www.balloonfestival.it

The need to prepare for facing a variety of emergency situations has increased a great deal over recent times. This is mainly due to the threat of terrorist activity or extreme weather conditions. The standard choices for contingency food storage (if made) are long-life food items such as tinned or dried products. However Hot Pack Self Heating Meals offer a hot, good tasting meal inside 12 minutes, with no cooker, microwave or fire required.
