A Derbyshire business, Base Camp Food, located in Melbourne, is to supply the mainstay of the sustenance for the 2019 expedition. Dehydrated rations are essential to help keep total carrying weights to a minimum and will also be supplemented with other lightweight foods – and of course the traditional expedition simnel cake.
Base Camp Food provided a selection of options for the members to trial before the order was placed.
“The taste and texture of these rehydrated main meals are amazing and we’re really pleased with the selection that Base Camp Food has provided for us” commented Chris Searston, “The speed of preparation is essential to help with getting food into us after our days’ work. We won’t have time for messing around and these ration packs will help with that.”
