All food supplied to all British and ISAF forces meets EU Quality and Food Safety Standards. Quality assurance checks are carried out throughout the supply chain and food quality is continually monitored by deployed chefs and food supply staff. UK technical staff also regularly visit theatre to monitor quality.
In terms of quantity, a large reserve of both operational ration packs (ORPs) and commercial food is held in Kabul to ensure that all demands from the front line are met. Both Main Operating Bases and Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) that are catering with ORPs are also provided with fresh food, the quantities of which are only ever impeded by the physical logistics of the challenging environment.
The feeding arrangements in main ISAF locations are the responsibility of NATO. I am aware, however, that UK NATO Food Services Staff have regular discussions with the Contractor and NATO regarding the dining facilities and that no official complaints have been received.
