Retort Pouch

Retort Pouch

Retort Pouch is a semi-rigid, flexible, leak-proof packaging solution made from heat-resistant laminated plastic capable of withstanding a high temperature of up to 250 degrees. The heat-resistant characteristics of the pouch allow the sterile packaging of a wide variety of food products, making it the ideal packaging solution for convenient, processed and pre-packaged food.


A standard Retort Pouch is made of 4 layers, is FDA approved and has undergone sterilisation to increase the durability of the packaging.

  • Propylene – acts as a heat seal surface and provides strength and flexibility.
  • Nylon – the layer which gives the pouch its abrasion-resistant feature
  • Aluminium Foil – Capable of extending the product’s shelf life and functions as a protective barrier to light, gases, microorganisms and odours. The stiffness of the aluminium foil enables the tear notch feature to be incorporated into the pouch.
  • Polyester – Provides high-temperature resistance, strength and ability to print graphics on
  • The multiple layers of the Retort Pouch help to reduce heat exposure which preserves and improves the colour, aroma, taste and shape of food-product, as well as minimising nutritional loss.
  • The flexible nature and the ability to stand upright not only help to maintain the composition of good but also takes up little storage space on the shelf. This, in turn, allows easy distribution as more products can be transported simultaneously, saving transportation costs.
  • The Retort Pouch enables the “tear notch” feature to be incorporated into the pouch to open the package quickly.
