Wescom Group’s New Emergency Rations Gain Global Approvals
15 May 2024

Wescom Group’s emergency rations have now received global approvals from Lloyds Register, providing worldwide endorsement that these new products meet the stringent quality requirements for survival provisions. 

The new products are the culmination of internal investment expanding Wescom Group’s European production facilities in Bremerhaven, Germany.  This enables large scale, highly automated production, under detailed European food quality standards and the updated 2022 ISO regulations for emergency rations. 

The approval of the new range of emergency long life water and rations reinforces Wescom Group’s reputation in high-quality manufacturing. It also provides Wescom Group’s extensive global distribution network with the economic benefits of a single source partner that offers trusted large-volume manufacturing, with logistical expertise in handling time sensitive and highly regulated products. 

Wescom Group CEO Ross Wilkinson says: “Our investment in a state-of-the-art production factory in Germany, together with our comprehensive range of high-quality survival products from globally recognised brands, gives our distributors and suppliers unprecedented reach for the supply and support of life raft survival solutions to its customers worldwide.” 

The new Comet and Pains Wessex branded emergency rations range include: 

Emergency Drinking Water: manufactured to German hygiene control standards and packed in nitrogen-rich air and watertight alu-foil. With a five-year shelf life, it is globally approved to meet ISO standard 18813:2022 and directive (EU) 2020/2184.  

Emergency Rations Survival Pack: developed to minimise size and conform to the latest ISO18813:2022 standards, the rations have a five-year shelf life, are vegan, use sustainable palm oil and are free of GMO.
