Tactical Foodpack, the idea of freeze-dried food originates from the actual needs and requests of the Special Forces for lightweight and high-energy foodpacks, at the same time paying extra attention to the taste of the produce as well as its shelf-life. Therefore, we have created a product line that offers a 5-year shelf-life with no added preservatives or flavour enhancers, keeping its original Estonian qualities. All you need is some hot water, let it rest for a while, and enjoy the great taste straight from the pouch.
Our products have been created and approved by Special Forces of different countries by fusing the needs and requirements on packaging as well as contents. Tactical Foodpack have also not forgotten about the high energy needs and the comforts of use. They use the freshest ingredients and follow the highest of quality standards. All their tactical foodpack products also work with just adding cold water as it is not always possible to heat water. That makes these product suitable also for alpinists, hikers, and naturally the military. As Tactical Foodpack has been developed by people working in the most complicated and challenging situations, they are convinced that these foods meet the highest of standards.
Tactical Foodpack is guided by the Special Forces principle: “Don’t f… with food!” “
About the technology: Freeze-drying is one of the best and most innovative ways of preserving food. Already two centuries ago the South American native people in the Andes discovered that taking frozen foods to higher altitudes with lower air-pressure will make ice crystals evaporate or sublime. Freeze-drying takes place through sublimation that transforms the substance directly from the solid to gas phase without passing through the intermediate liquid phase. Freeze-drying will preserve the natural taste, smell, appearance, and nutrition of the produce. Thanks to the small water content of the produce, there is no need to add preservatives. Such technology enables to preserve the food for longer periods without losing its quality. Depending on the process of production and packaging it is possible to extend the shelf-life up to 25 years. U.S. Special Forces adopted the particular technology already 25 years ago.
