Breakfast has always been touted as the most important meal of the day, and one not to skip. This is because it sets you up for the rest of your day, getting the proper nutrition to fuel your body for whatever you need to tackle.

That’s why on hiking or expeditions it’s important to start off with a hearty breakfast, and in the winter months even better if it’s warm!

Our Hotpack breakfast meals are perfect to put in your pack no matter where you are headed, as the flameless heater ensures you can have a hot meal wherever your feet take you. Choose from All Day Breakfast, Beans and Sausages, or Vegetarian Beans and Sausages.

Each pack has everything you need to heat and eat your meal. A flameless ration heater and a long handled spork. Just add a small amount of water and the heater does the rest, giving you a hot meal in 6-8 minutes!

Covid-19 Facemasks

With facemasks becoming compulsory, we have two different options to choose from.

The popular 3 layer disposable mask protects your mouth and airways from pollution and helps prevent hand to mouth transmission of bacteria.

This mask features 3 Layers – Leak Proof Non-Woven Fabric, High-Density Filter Layer, and Direct Contact Skin Layer.

The KN 95 face mask has multi-layer filtration designed to be used in public places such as airports, public transport, shopping centres or offices. The perfect mask for essential travel or commuting.

KN95 face masks are designed to filter out a minimum of 95% of particles which make the filtration system highly effective. World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended

Prepare for your Autumn Camping Trip

Now that the summer holidays are coming to an end, some of the UK’s best beauty spots will be practically empty, so it’s a great time to plan Autumnal camping trips. Some people only associate camping with warm weather and summer holidays, but you can camp into Autumn and beyond.

Revise your summer camping kit with some Autumn and winter essentials like warmer thermal sleeping bags, possibly a smaller tent so the heat can be held within better, and don’t forget that layering is key.

When choosing a spot to pitch your tent, look for more sheltered spots from the wind, or ones that get some sun for most of the day to warm up your tent for you. Nothing better than waking up to a sun drenched tent thats nice and warm when the weather outside is a bit cooler.

A sleeping bag that has a head pocket is great to make sure you’re snug and warm when sleeping. These are often called ‘mummy-style- as they wrap you right up. There are roomier ones out there if you toss and turn, so have a look at the different styles to decide what’s right for you.

Bring lots of layers that are easily foldable so that way you can use them to sleep in and hike. A good rain poncho is key, especially ones that can fit over your whole pack. There’s some great options out there that can be used as ground cover or even tent shelter as well!

And lastly, make sure you’ve got access to hot meals to warm you up. Start your day off with one our filling breakfasts, then you may want to just pack some snacks while hiking, and finish the day off with one of our delicious dinners. Hot Pack meals are specially designed to just need a little bit of water to activate the heater, and in 10-12 minutes you will have a delicious warm meal. You can choose between meat and vegetarian options. Check all our options here.

Are you giving Autumnal camping a go this year? We’d love to hear where you are planning to go!

Hot Meals for Emergency Services

Being part of Emergency services can be taxing enough, so making sure each member gets the proper nutrition is essential.

Our emergency ration packs can be eaten both hot or cold, ensuring you’re getting the proper nutrition to carry on with key aspects of your job. With a range of different meal options, you can also be sure there’s something to suit every taste.

Our self-heating breakfast is very popular as it’s delicious and can be eaten on the go or while you get to have a break. It is also great to have on hand if you come across someone who needs help and a quick meal.

All our self-heating meals are to be stored at room temperature and have a long shelf life, so they are easily kept on hand in vehicles or offices. You can choose from our convenient put together 24 hour ration packs or pick and choose your own meals to create your own.

Add your Covid-19 supplies to your pack

With the rise of Coronavirus (Covid-19) you may have to pack your expedition or camping bags a little differently than you used to.

It’s always good to make sure you’ve got anti-bacterial gel on hand. When hiking and having to open and close access gates, it’s always good practice to clean your hands after to avoid germ contamination. You can also wipe down any surfaces other people may have touched such as picnic tables or power outlets if in a campground.

Masks are common practice these days, and while re-usable ones are a great option, you may run out of safe ones, so having a pack of disposable masks on hand or in a backpack pocket ensures you’ve always got a fresh one.

So when adding your food supplies to your cart, don’t forget to visit our Covid-19 supplies here to add your hand sanitiser and face masks as well.

Hot Meals While Hiking

With Covid-19 restrictions many people are looking for places to get outdoors, and taking trips closer to home. Coupled with some of the best weather the UK has had, camping and ‘glamping’ has unsurprisingly been on the rise.

Don’t have your own tent? There are many options around the UK that include pop up tents with beds already set up, caping pods or small cabins to keep you warm and dry, or even horse boxes that have been transformed into an overnight haven.

Whatever your choice, cooking and making elaborate meals might not be at the forefront of you thoughts as you want to get out and see the stunning scenery and landscape around you. Our range of self-heating meals offer a quick and delicious way to dine without having to cart heavy cooking equipment on your holiday.

Simply add a small amount of water to activate the heat sachet and in 10-12 minutes you have a nice hot meal. Perfect for sitting around a campfire, or grabbing something quick before hitting your next hike.

Ditch the cooking equipment for easy self-heating meals

Skip packing stoves and cumbersome cook-wear, and just toss in some self-heating meals into your expedition pack! What if we said you would have no dishes to wash, no rummaging for the right pots and cooking utensils, just quick and easy meal prep?

With our self-heating ready to eat meals there is just one easy pack and a biodegradable long handled spork. Add a little water to the flameless heater and let science heat up your meal with a chemical reaction, which is perfectly safe. Dig in and enjoy! 

Once you’re done everything can be put back into the food back for disposal, making clean up a no-fuss job. 

Self-heating meals are great for camping, expeditions, or anywhere you would want to look forward to a hot, easy meal at the end of your day. Or start your day off with our hot breakfast starts! There’s such a variety of meals you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner for several days and try something new each time.

Emergency Rations with Hot Pack Meals

An emergency kit is vital in the event of a major incident emergency or disaster. It can ensure your families survival until help arrives, or if the emergency services are overwhelmed. In the UK, storms and flooding often mean that thousands of people are left with no gas or electricity and maybe even fresh water. Perhaps having to survive for a day or so in upstairs rooms without cooking facilities.

Having self-heating food available in this situation would make sure you can still have a hot meal without the use of a kitchen. In other parts of the world where hurricanes, earthquakes and more occur frequently taking down trees and power lines, a survival grab and go bag is recommended. 

Supplies should be checked every few months, as even though the hot pack meals have long best before dates, they should be replaced before their expiry ensuring you’re not caught out should you require a hot meal.
