It is a flexible, heat-resistant plastic pouch that can withstand high temperatures during the retort sterilization process. The retort pouch is designed to provide an extended shelf life for food items while maintaining their flavor, nutritional value, and quality. The construction of a retort pouch involves multiple layers of flexible materials such as polyester, aluminum foil, and polypropylene. These layers work together to provide excellent barrier properties against oxygen, moisture, light, and other external factors that can degrade the product. The combination of materials ensures that the pouch can withstand the high heat and pressure of the retort sterilization process without compromising the integrity of the packaging or its contents.

The rise in disposable income and busy schedules have led to an increased demand for convenience food products. Retort pouches offer convenience, portability, and easy-to-use features, making them ideal choice for consumers seeking ready-to-eat or on-the-go meal options. Additionally, the food and beverage industry in the Asia Pacific region is expanding due to changing dietary habits, increasing population, and rising consumer awareness regarding food safety and hygiene. Retort pouches provide an effective packaging solution for a wide range of food and beverage products, including sauces, soups, baby food, pet food, and ready meals. The versatility and shelf-stability offered by retort pouches are driving their adoption in the industry. Other than this, there is a growing emphasis on sustainable packaging solutions due to the rising environmental concerns.
