ARAB READY MEALS (ARM)

ARM is a food-solutions provider for the defense sector. It manufactures high-quality, convenient Meals Ready-to-Eat (MRE) based on a retort pouch system and provides food catering services to military camps. It is a partnership with Brahim Overseas Ventures, an affiliate of Dewina Holdings, a Malaysian food specialist company. ARM prides itself on its flexibility, bringing a wide range of custom-designed meals that meet its clients› nutritional needs and cater to their culinary preferences as well.

Why ARM MRE

ARM MREs were designed to succeed out-dated C-Rations (Canned Rations), and utilise state-of-the-art food preparation and storage technology, including sophisticated sterilization techniques.
The technology allows various advantages over C-Rations. Unlike C-Rations, ARM MREs undergo a relatively cool thermal process due to better heat penetration, which arises from a thinner profile. This hugely decreases the possibility of overcooking, and preserves the flavour, texture and condition of the meal. All meals are free of artificial preservatives and monosodium glutamate (MSG).

ADVANTAGES

• MREs formats are easier to handle, and are soft
• MREs are lighter and less bulky than C-Rations, allowing more efficient stockpiling and easier transportation
• MRE containers do not rust nor dent, unlike C-Ration containers
• A thinner profile enables the MRE to be heated faster, and easy-tear packaging allows packets to be opened quickly by hand

• Individual dishes packed in 4ply, reinforced, nylon-laminated pouches
• Durable, able to withstand ration deployment by airdrop
