If you are at a point where you are thinking about buying meals ready to eat, a form of military ration, then buying MRE wholesale supplies is an intelligent way to save money. However, there are other advantages to buying MRE meals in bulk, on top of the obvious volume discounts and potential savings on shipping and handling, which might even be free for a large order.

Another distinct advantage of buying MREs from a wholesale source is that you are likely to get a bunch of them at once. That’s not just advantageous for volume pricing, but because it gives you a wide variety of different meals to choose from. You can sample a number of individual entrees, as well as sides, deserts, and beverages. You’ll soon develop favorites that you are likely to order more of in the future to use for camping, hiking, boating, sailing, and other outdoor adventures.

The second benefit you get from wholesale orders of MREs, other than saving money, is that you can fill a supply cabinet or locker all at once. You might never intend to eat your MREs but just know they’re handy to have in case of long power outages, natural disasters, and other emergencies. There’s no need to spend time assembling your supplies when you can do it all in one fell swoop.

Buying MRE wholesale supplies can be done through a number of different channels. Camping and sporting goods retailers in your community might have civilian-grade MRE meals available, but probably not at wholesale volumes or prices though. It’s better to check conventions and shows, as well as magazines, journals, and catalogs. Search online for suppliers, and also consider a visit to any military surplus suppliers in your community.
