Does anyone have a recommendation as to the best place to order MRE's, as far as price / quality / quantity?

Technically, military MREs say on the box not for commercial resale...however, the government doesn't typically enforce this, and eBay doesn't really care what's put up on its site...a good site to check for info on different types of civilian and military MREs (including sites to buy from) would be http://www.mreinfo.com/

I have ordered from them before and was really satisfied.
What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

I do not know about shipping MREs to Canada but MREs are heavy and shipping a single case of 12 MREs by air in the US is about $80- $110 for just the freight cost.

Also the heaters are considered HazMat and may pose some extra shipping cost/restrictions.


I just found this site via Google. I have never used it but seems to be set up for Canada or the US.

They have an amazing selection, you can order specific meals and components as well. They also list the production date for every product in the order area. Sometimes when you see a good price on MRE's online its because they went bad about a year ago.

Thanks Raptor! The site you provided ships to my area. Also that's the brand that Canadian amazon sells...
