Insulated Food Container (IFC)
The Insulated Food Container (IFC) is a commercially available container used for storing and transporting combat rations. It is capable of holding food at serving temperatures for over 4 hours in harsh environments (-25°F to 125°F).
Field feeding requires transporting hot quality meals to the Warfighters in remote locations.
The IFC is made of sturdy, double-wall, high density, molded polyethylene for impact resistance. Each IFC stores food in three separate inserts with lids (standard 1/3-size 6-inch deep steam table pans). It can also be utilized with any standard size commercial steam table pan. The thick, foam-injected, insulation assures superior thermal performance. IFCs are designed to be interlocked and stacked for easier transport and maximum storage space.
All containers are used with three, 1/3-size, 6”-deep stainless steel or plastic insert pans with covers and gaskets. The pans are separated by two 13-¾” divider bars (NSN 7360-01-470-1237)
