What is Retort Packaging?
Retort packaging is made from specialty materials to withstand the high temperatures required to properly sterilise product within a retort chamber.
Not all products need to undergo retort processing, however sensitive products such as some soups and stocks (such as those with dairy or animal protein content) may require it depending on their ingredients and storage requirements.
Just like with canned goods, retort pouches are filled with product, sealed, and then undergo retort processing in order to destroy any microbes that may cause food spoilage and ensure a long shelf life is achieved.
PLEASE NOTE: Clients packing certain food products into our retort pouches must ensure they undergo correct retort processing. If you're unsure, get in touch with us for a contract packer recommendation, who can help you retort your product safely.
