What's your market?

Weekend trips in the hills - I'd rather put my own together,
The MOD - fat chance, they're tight bastards
Officers Mess - You could be on to something here :)

Small bottle of chablis / Claret
Decent biscuits (not AB) - perhaps a small pack of Bath Olivers?
Small can Pate / or decent (i.e. not racid) cream cheese - primula? Patum peperium for menu D
Boil in the bag Chateau Briande or at least decent curry
Twinnings Tea, Coffe bags & Green and Blacks organic chocolate drink

A mars bar that isn't made of cardboard and have the melting point of DU

....now that would be of interest

Delivery as well?
Put me down for 3 cases - make that four my gunner will probably want some too.

On a serious note - a well marketed rat pack which actually had some realistically edible contents would be appealing

£15 to £20 quid a pop - a weeks catering in the field for £100 or a treat for Mrs. La_La to send in morale mail

Maybe if you set up shops outside the usual walt locations i.e. paintball areas (put on packaging "as used by 49 para" for extra income).

But as most lads take their own on exercise, like potnoodle's, proplus, and a crate of wifebeater in the side bins, you would have to offer somthing a little better than good quality grub, who do you think we are??? We live out the cookhouse as soon as we run out of maccydees' money. Good qual grub is reserved for leaving does, when we're far to drunk to appriciate what we have (then go on the lash, and end up at McD's again)

Are the new rations really that bad?

I've not had any British rations since 1991. I may be willing to do a swap for some Danish rations if anyone is interested. They're not bad, but are probably the heaviest rat packs in NATO.

Shame, all those huge mountains you have to carry them over.
