Unitized Group Ration, M Option (UGR - M)

What is it?

The Unitized Group Ration-B (UGR-B) is being phased out to be replaced by the 50-person Unitized Group Ration - M (UGR-M). The Unitized B Menus are close to being exhausted if they are not already. Any orders for Unitized B menus that are no longer available will be substituted by UGR-M Menus.

What's in it?

The UGR-M will have dehydrates, but will feature more commercial type items for the balance of the module components. The UGR-M will have 7 breakfast and 14 lunch/dinner menus. It will still be for USMC usage. The UGR-M is quick & easy to prepare and includes shelf stabe ingredients to prepare complete meals emphasizing the use of commercial products. It offers 7 breakfast and 14 lunch/dinner menus with each meal providing an average of 1,300 kiloclaories (15% protein, 30% fat and 55% carbohydrate).

How long will it last

The UGR-M is unitized into three fiberboard cartons, including disposables. Each module provides 50 meals and each pallet contains 8 modules or 400 meals. They are assembled at Government depots and have an expected shelf life of 18 months at 80F.
