Packaged survival meals are a high-tech long-lasting food option. They are the colonists' primary source of food at the beginning of each game (except for a tribal start) before they set up a new source of food. They can also be cooked, minimum cooking skill 8, after research or found in crashed cargo pods. Packaged survival meals restore 0.9 nutrition and never expire, meaning they do not require cold storage.


They are made with 0.3 nutrition worth of animal ingredients and 0.3 nutrition worth of plant ingredients at fueled stoves and electric stoves. This is not as efficient compared to other means of food preparation such as fine meals, so it's best not to prepare these for regular colony use. Unlike other meals, packaged survival meals can be sold to traders and friendly settlements.

Compared to pemmican, packaged survival meals are slightly less profitable and nutritious per ingredient (~11/~6%, respectively), but more efficient by weight (~14/20%) and drastically more efficient per stack (+129%/+177%), while also requiring significantly (33%) less work to make. This makes it a good choice for travel or emergency rations once a colony has both the required stove and cook.
