Retort Pouches

A growing number of food manufacturers are turning to retort pouches to package their goods. A retort pouch is a form of food packaging made from flexible plastic and sometimes metal foils. The packaging is able to withstand very high temperatures used to sterilise food items and does not allow harmful gases to permeate the material. For this reason, retort pouches give food extended shelf life, meaning it does not lose its flavour over time. Retort pouches are a flexible, lightweight alternative to aluminium cans.

Uses of Retort Pouch

Retort pouches are a popular packaging solution in the food manufacturing industry. The pouches are used to store food items such as meat, ready meals, soups, seafood, camping food, instant noodles, pasta dishes, rice, sauces and pet food. Foods can either be raw or pre-cooked before being put into retort pouches, before being transported across long distances. Another reason retort pouches are ideal for the food manufacturing industry is that they are compact, taking up less space in transit and in storage.
