WHAT IS RETORTABLE PACKAGING?
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 drinks handled by aseptic processing, and is used as an alternative to traditional industrial canning methods. The food inside is cooked in a similar way to pressure cooking. This process reliably kills all commonly occurring microorganisms, preventing it from spoiling. The food-grade, Fda-approved materials used to construct this type of packaging undergo a sterilization process that extends the shelf life of the product inside while preserving all nutritional constitution of the food item.
