Creating a shelf stable product for fresh produce is made easy using retorting in flexible packaging. This packaging is especially suitable for cooked and pre-prepared foods.
The simple process of sealing and heating to in excess of 120 degrees C in a retort chamber offers long-term product and shelf-life benefits.
- High temperature tolerance
Being tolerant to temperatures up to 120 degrees Celsius makes the retort pouch a great choice for cooked food products.
- Long term shelf-life
Take the stress out of your supply chain with the long-term shelf-life of the retort pouch whilst maintaining the quality of your products.
- Resealable options
Opt for a zip-lock option to help consumers to reduce food waste by keeping the product in the pouch for longer.
- Make it your own
With multiple printing alternatives, including 10 colour gravure printing and matt or gloss options available you can make sure your branding is clear.
Reduce food spoilage
Being a retorable pouch with high barrier options increases the aseptic nature of the product, decreasing food spoilage through stopping or limiting microorganism growth. This also increases the shelf-life of the product.
Using the retort process allows pre-prepared meals, pet food and soups to stay fresh for longer, both on the shelf and in the fridge, directly contributing to the reduction in food waste.
Highly customisable in design and construct
Our retort pouch offers great flexibility in the visual aspect of your packaging to either focus on your branding and information or let the product itself shine. Pouches can be die cut with easy-to-open tear nicks or opt for laser scores that allow for ease of opening.
We collaborate with you to decide on design options such as rounded corners, hang sell hole and on pouch branding and information. You will need a basic heat sealer, rotary band sealer, chamber vacuum packer, rotary pouch filler or sealer for this pouch.
