We are Prepack

Prepack is a food logistics business, specialising in the procurement of long-life food and the design and assembly of ration packs

Prepack is based in Palmerston North and has been assembling and supplying ration packs for many years.  Over that time, Prepack has created an efficient process for developing and assembling ration packs that meet customer requirements.

Prepack is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Multi-Pack Group.  The Group, consisting of companies Prepack, Multi-Pack and Portion Pack Foods, source ration pack components, including ready-to-eat meals, from a range of suppliers in Australasia.  These components are assembled into ration packs and survival packs at Prepack, and then shipped to customers both locally and internationally.

The Group is the only independently owned scale supplier of ration packs and related components in Australasia that currently meets the requirements of military, emergency, disaster, and humanitarian relief organisations.

Prepack has a comprehensive Quality Management System (QMS) certified to both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 22000:2018.  The QMS includes a Food Safety Program designed around the requirements of the Codex HACCP CAC/RCP 1-1969, Rev 4-200 within ISO 22000:2018.

The Prepack site is a Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) approved Transitional Facility for import containers and has a Risk Management Program (RMP) for exports.

Become a Supplier

Prepack works collaboratively with a wide range of Australasian suppliers, developing innovative products to ensure ration packs and components reflect the latest nutritional knowledge, food technologies and market trends.

Prepack’s Approved Supplier Program is a five-step process used to determine if a new Supplier or Subcontractor has the capability (food safety standards, appropriate certification, production capacity, minimal order quantities) to meet the Prepack standards and requirements.

Prepack’s Risk Assessment determines appropriate verification requirements commensurate with the risk.  These requirements include ongoing surveillance audits, verification of Supplier/Subcontractor certification and Incoming Goods Inspections.
