A retort pouch or retortable pouch is a type of food packaging made from a laminate of flexible plastic and metal foils. It allows the sterile packaging of a wide variety of food and drink handled by aseptic processing, and is used as an alternative to traditional industrial canning methods. Packaged foods range from water to fully cooked, thermo-stabilized (heat-treated) high-caloric (1,300 kcal on average) meals such as Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MREs) which can be eaten cold, warmed by submersing in hot water, or through the use of a flameless ration heater. Retort pouches are used in field rations, space food, fish products, camping food, instant noodles, soups, pet food, sauces, tomato ketchup etc. Our retort pouch is 100% safe & durable during the high temperature sterilization process and we’re open for samples for your test.
